This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you.

pERnAPB the office of a Magazine like ours may be said to be 
twofold ; the one to point out the constant progress of Literature 
uid the Arts, by the exertions of others ; and the other to con- 
tribute itself to their improvement. The former duty is per- 
fonned by due notices of the works published, by accounts of the 
most remarkable and valuable discussions in Literary and Scien- 
tific Societies, and by records of discoveries made known through 
other channels of information. The second duty we are enabled to 
execute through the friendly assistance of our Correspondents, 
who each contribute something to improve their own branches of 
study, and thus, by the juchcious combination of individual eflFort, 
is tlie general structure of literature elevated and enlarged. 

Again, while each one has some favourite walk in literature, 
which he prefers to all others, and which he delights in improvuig, 
and on which the great attention of his mind is concentrated ; yet, 
by a natural curiosity, as well as by the intimate alliance of the 
different branches of learning with each other, he is not wiUing to 
be unacquainted with the progress of other minds, and the con- 
quests that are making on those realms of knowledge which are 
more or less adjacent to his own. To effect this, however, by the 
perusal of all the original works, would be a labour impossible to 
undergo ; and, as a general survey of the map of knowledge is all 
that LB required, the Magazine offers the most ready and available 
means of supplying what is wanted, not only by pointing out the 
progress and direction of the stream, but by marking the objects 
most worthy of attention that are reflected in its bosom. Much 
time is saved, and labour spared, by our curiosity being at once 
rightly directed to the prominent and proper objects, and by 
hnring some faithful and attentive guide in our intellectual pur- 
suits. Tlic more authors that arise, U>e more critics will follow 
in their trahi} if new Magazines and Reviews s\Ait \r^, «& ^^'^ 


jly do, we may be sure that there is a copious supply of original 
matter at the fountain head. We hope (to continue the metaphor) 
that those who drink from ours, which is one of tlie oldest water- 
courses that has been made from the general reservoir, will have 
no reason to complain that the channel has been injured by time, 
the supply directed by unskilful or unfaithful hands. We wish 
continue now what we formerly were, and that it may be said 
_of us, as was said of a learned German divine, LuUprandm nun- 
tarn Luitprando dUsimUU/uit.

Jfoaotr* mrf CorrttponieiKt of Franeix Horner, E»q. Edited by hi* 
Brother, Leonard Horner, Esq. 2 vol*. 

80 well lias this work been exccnted thwl wc can BGircely repret the 
Eiilare oftbc previous attempts to coinposo a biogrupliicnl memoir of Mr, 
Horarr, nbcu tbc mntcrials collected for tbe subject bad been tiiircesKively 
tBtniated to tMoof bis intimate friends,* ivbo were botb prevetiled, by 
pnfcMioii '. from executing tbe task, Mhicb otherwise the 

datiei ai><i <>r past friendsliip would bave made tliem eager to 

tocept. Mr. Leoiinrd Horner has, however, Judiciously adopted a plan of 
ki'ln i> liicb must surpass, in the fidelity of the likeness, the most de- 
lied touches of any other hand, ns much as tbe reflection of 
cc in tbe clear and transparent mirror docs the strongest 
Mhiirc by the painter's baud. He lias adopted tbe plan sugi'ealed 
in tbe memoii of Sir .Samuel Kooiilly, — selecting and arranging the 
wttUoDtic and original materials collected, abstaining himself from com- 
kt ■ -■< -' — rk, and giving little or nothing but what bad been written 
^•f tbe biography, or by one or other of bis correspondents ; 
Liy .1 careful selection from the coi rei«pondence and journals of bis 
tnd bv the addition of a few pages at the conimeticement and 
^■ed by filling up occasional blanks in the narrative, he baa made Mr. 
Br liim«rlf narrate the history of bis life. As he litnilcd bis work 
'. be has given, be informs us, not more than a third of the 
■ rg he |>o»8Cb*ef, only a small part of those of bis corre- 
ipODiJt:iilii, and a certain portion of extracts friini the journal. In most 
thin would have been judicious, for an overlo.ided and encumbered 
Mam]>by of ordinary persons is one of the evils of the age, and the ad- 
dhaMl of a tliird \oluiuc would scarcely be desirable ; but so valuable, in 
(lie prCMot iustauce, aix- tbe materials wliicb furin the narrative, so illus- 
H *tc the names of the persons that occur, so important the events 
'ipd and the opinions that are discussed, that, when the work

wilderiag splendour — astonishes and dazzles us with its uncertain move* 
luent and its unwonted light, and then it blades on in its progress iu a 
path too remote for us to reach, and with a brilliancy wc find it diflicDlt to 
endure. The creations of the highest genius are made for the admiration, 
not the imitation, of ordinary minds. It is from others of another and i^h 
difTcrent clas.s that we can obtain mlcs for our instruction and guidance-^H 
knowledge such as we can adopt and employ — principles we can under- 
stand and associate with our own. It is in this point of view that we 
consider the work before us as one of no common value. Mr. Horner ap- 
pears to have been gifted with a very clear and vigorous understanding — 
this Was Nature's dowry lo him — all beside he achieved out of this fo4" 
himself, and no one but will peruse with interest the steps which led 
such early maturity of mind, and to such rapid accumulations uf select and 
valu.ible knowledge. It will be seen that he had the .idvantngc of cxccfi 
lent instruction in his youth, that he was placed, when he i|nitted the 
parental roof, under those who guided his progress with attention and 
nkill — that he lost no time in unnecessary and unconnected |nirsuits — that 
he never lingered in those bye-ways and pleasant nouks and paths o£- 
literary amusement that have been so fatally seductive to many, — that h<r 
was never entangled among the " di/Tieiles nugtc " of a too curious and an| 
wieldy erudition, — that he was never lost in those devious ways that i| 
every direction are intersecting the vast map of knowledge, — that he did 
not suffer himself to cast anchor and become becalmed by the tr;inquil nnd 
alluring enjoyment of some inferiorpursuit : and that he escaped, by strcngtT 
and determination of purpose, those reductions which have paralyse 
the efforts of so many minds, .ind consigticd to oblivion names worthy of a 
better fate. But he seems early lo have seen licfore him the arduous and 
honourable path he designed to traverse, .ind t/) have taken the means to 
attain success. The broad and massive foundati<m on which his t.y8t<ra of 
education was laid, that was to fit him for all the purposes of his futur 
life, an<l the great extent of those studies which, however apparently rc4 
mote, all |K>inted to and united in the same end, may be seen in n passagAj

About this time (1801) be writes in his journal. 


" Neither in pliiloiiopby nor in law 
b»ve I prosfcnted any regular object of 
epplicatioa. I hive, as ubukI, indulged 
ajrtelf io all the rereries of future schiere- 
meat, future acquiaition, future fame ; 
poetry, romautir philosophy, ambition, 
and vonlty conspire to infatuate roe in 
this obliriuQ of the present ; and amid 
thia viiioDsry iotoxication I almost feel 
the powers of actual exertion sink within 
mc. In justice to myself, however, I 

ought to note, that these speculations al 

dreams scarcely ever consist in the rejd 

sentation of external hononr* fo he eaf

In another part of the jonrnsl wc find him |)aying a high tribute of 
praise, but not more high than just, to a work which wc always considered 
to be one which may be advautageoosly studicil, not only with reference 
to the particular art on which it treats, but to all others connected with it. 

" Next to the writings of Bacon (he 
writes), there is no book which has more 
powerfully impelled me to revolve these 
scntiinenti than the DifconnM of Sir 
Joshua Reynolds. He i> o ' '

Again, he says, 

" WTiile I had Rurlie in one hand, 1 
held in the other Sir Joshua Keynolds's 
Discourses, endeavouring to apply to mt/ 
Alt the admirable criticisms which hn de- 
livers upon painting. I have constantly 
referred to the liberal precept* which he 
urgea with regard to the study and imi- 

and the confidence' with which he asserts 

the omnipotence of human labour, have 

the effect of familiarising his reader with 

the idea that grnina is an acquisition

Memoirs mid Correspondence of Frnncit Horner. f July, 

bents, u|ioii a system of rigid economy, and on the formation of sncli a 
finance cittablislitneut as iniglit relievo tlie finances of llie country. He 
followed Sir James Maciiitobli and ^ir Samuel Romilly in a speech which 
produced great effect on the treaty of peace signed at Vienna in 1815. On 
the -.ith of June he addressed the Mouse for the last time in the cau8S, 
religious liberty and of Ireland. Mr. Horner followed Mi'. Canning i 
s|>eech in favour of emancipation. It was aiinost immediately snbseqiici 
to this that we hear for the first time of his illness, — symi)toin» of a pul- 
monary aflTection appeared, ivhicli conld not be arrested, thongli it appeared 
in so indefinite and indistinct a form as to jwrplex his medical advisers 
and encourage hopes of his recovery even to the last. In the autumn he 
was living at Dryden, near Edinburgh, but by the ailvite of Drs. Oregory 
and Hamilton and others, they advised that the approaching winter shoiild 
be passed in the softer climate of Italy. On this plan both Doctors Warreu 
and Baillie agreed. His brother, the author of these volumes, accompanied 
him abroad. Pisa was selected as the most suitable residence in pre- 
ference to Rome, where he. arrived in the end of November. Thoagli 
very weak, and suffering from poluionary attacks, he was able to read, to 
form new and enlarged plans of study, to corrcsjrond with his friends in 
England, to discuss (he policy of government, and to urge the ncces- 
Bity of measures of finance suited to the oltereil situation of the country. 
On the 4tli of February he wrote an account of lii» henllli to his father, 
in which he made a favourable report of himself ; the remainder of the me- 
lancholy history wc must abridge from the words of his brothers narra- 
tive. Air. Horner at no time, not even to the last, apprehended that hi» 
disease was likely to Ik- fatal. Indeed he looked forward with confidence to 
renovated health, and spoke of not liciug able to resist a visit to Home ])rc- 
vions to his return, but his feelings of returning health were an illusion, bit 
disease was fast approaching its fatal termination, and in four days from 
the date of the letter mentioned lie breathed his last. W'v shall pass o' 
the very nfllieting details of his lust attack, and only mention that on 
examination of the body by Dr. Vaccii, an eminent Italian physician who 
attended him, it was discovered th.-it his disease was not ooiisuinptiun, bi 
nil enlargement of the air-cells, and a condensation of the substance of 
lungs, which the sagacity of Dr. Baillie had suggested a« the probal 
cause of the worst symptoms, — a malady which no medical skill conld hare

first with great difficulties : but tbc whoW I 
re&ieincnt of lociul intercourse oonsiita 
in the impoiition of restraints ; all im- 
provement i9 nothing but the rcmonil of 
' ■■ ''»; and perfection Is merely a re- 
rill, to express Ibe ereiiter num- 
ililticulties which it remains for ut 
to surmount. (These general rctlectionf 
1 bftvB here thrown out, because ' the ide« 
of a perfect ronversation ' has been very 
naturally tiiggestcd to my fancy by the 
scenes nt which I have lately been a spec- 
tator ; further rellection may enable me 
to decide how far my present Idea is cor- 
rect, and farther obeerv'ation to pronounce 
whether it ia practicable.) I shall only 
remark farther in this place that between 
Sharp and Mackintosh, for example, ther« 
seems to me too much of ostentation with 
respect to canons of criticisms, Ike, ; as If ] 
they lived too much together ; as if they 
belonged to a kind of sect ; or as if there 
was something of compromise between 
Iheio. Their principles of criticism and 
taste appear lo me quite just, and formed 
very much tipou the French school ; Ha,- 
cinf and Virgil, the models of poetical 
composition, and Cicero, the prince of 
prose writers ; at the same time they do 
not carry tJie principles upon which this 
judgment is founded to that cold and 
dull extreme, which limits all excellence 
to correctness, and allows no relish for 
the wildness of untamed imagination, or 
the flights of cxtrnvagnnt eccentric genius. 
I rather apprehend that they even suffer 
this indulgence a little farther them Is 
cjnite consistent with the other ruling 
princijile : their admiration of Bnrke, for 
example, is nut ({ualiHcd enough ; and 
their appetite for the nervous or flowing 
passages lluit may with toil be detected in 
the obscure folios of some of our old 
English writers, ' apparent rari nantet in 
gurgite rasto,' betrays unquestionably a 
palate not fully gratified with the milder 
relish of chastened eiceUeoce."

Memoif$ and Correspondence of Francis Horner, fJuly, 


out of tlieir vra; to an imtUtion of Smith's 
imutoess and |>oint and sarcasm. The 
conreriation of Roinilly and Wilson (ip- 
pcan to be quite different from cither of 
tbow two ; never indicating a design to 
diipUjr, but flowing from the abundance 
of enlightened, refined, and richly in- 
formed undcrFtandingB. The consequence 
of all this ycitcrdny was, that no one 
had a full unrestrained course, and the 
oonversation was made up of occasional 
efforts by all, in which each seemed fet- 
tered by the presence of the rest. All 
this, however, is only in comparison of 
the expectations I had raised ; for the 
scene was quite new to me, and was un- 
questionably distinguished by great talent. 

If I were to describe th» merit of en'-'i liv 
a single word, I should say thnt S 
fhows subtlety, Smith promptilmli 
kiiitosb copiousness, and Romilly rttiiic- 
rocnt. I mention in Romilly this dis- 
tinguishing character, both because I have 
!ieen in him a remarkable degree of soft- 
ness and elegance, and beoauie I 
r,ilher hurt by n want of sentimental dd 
racy in Mackintosh and Smith. U|l 
the whole, BoliMt is altogether the 
of despotic talent in conversation thati 
has always been described to me ; be hi 
something of despotic manner too ; hit 
physiognomy, of which the forehead 
admirable, indicates both." 

The next chnrncter that appears is of a different kind. 

" This afternoon and evening were 
spent in the very agreeable comjiany of 
Sydney Smith, Playfair, Alison, and 
Greathead. It is the first time 1 have 
met with Aliton, and I am quite lakcn 
with his conversation : he a])pears to mc 
to possess a fund of diversified and mis- 
cellaneous information, nod to have gra- 
dually formed the acquisition not only 
with the vigour of an original ond reflect- 
ing mind, but with the li'uipcr of n mind 
happily harmonised, and free fi vin all the 
•hackles of theory as well as of prejudiio. 
This information is likewise communicated 
not only witi) the most unafTcrtnl ease, 
and with an air of perfect liberality and 
candour, but with a mixed sensibility and 
pleasantry which 1 have seldom seen so 
well blended together. If I should be 
fortunate enuugh to become acquainted 
with Alison, I persuade myself Ids con- 
versation would contribute to the melior- 
ation of my character. NVhcn 1 recollect 
the lights which my understanding has 
received, and the amendment which my 
taste and passions have undergone from 
the society and convcrsotion of a few men 
with whom I have chiefly associated of 
late years, — Hewlett, Allen, Lord M'. 
Seymour, Smith, Murray, tiC. — 1 cannot 
hesitate to decide, that I have derived 
more iolelleitual ini| ' Troni thetn 

than from all the ' i !• turned 

over. Their influen., . . n the more 
bene£iaal that each has produced a dif- 
ferent effect ; so that what I have rrccivrd 
in the form of habit or sentiment from 
ooe has not only been enftircrd by what 
the TCTt conlribuljd, bul corrected also 
whore there was any drgrc« "f rxcisj."

" I agree with you. that I have never

as Mr. Wilson. .So circumspect an 
understanding, united with so much 
warmth of heart, and such refined sensi-

could gain, and retained for every thing 
that concerned the happiness of mankindt 
or the welfare and reputation of his friends, 
an ardour like that of youth. For some 
years past, he seemed to look upon him*

bii ardour for Irelaad, and his charac- 

teristic sketr'— • "f v^oni with whom he 
has aot«d ' . and n great deal 

of fun, Btfl ' ■ 'c, and sense about

for I fear he is nearly as murh, and with 
the veneration that belongs to hi> name, 
from the figure ha has made in our 
politics, it is im))ossrhle not to take • 
deep interest in one who renders himself 
so accessible and so iDsttuctire." 

The following slight sketch, evinces tome skill iu piiysiognomical 
science ; for Sir H. Davy possessed poetical powers of no vuignr kind, 
which if cultivated, would have led to excellence. 

" I have been once to the Royal In- 
stitution, and heard Davy lecture on 
animal subatannea to a mixed and Urge 
aaseoibly of both sexes, to the number, 
perhaps, of three huudred or more. It la 
a curious scene ; the reflections it excites 
ar« of an ambiguous nature ; for the pros- 
pect of possible good is miugled with the 
observation of much actual folly. The 
audience is assembled by the influence of 
fashion merely, and faahiou and chemistry 
form a very incongruous union. At the 
same time, it is a trophy to the sciences ; 
one great advance is made towards the 
aasociation of female with masculine 
minds in the pursuit of useful knowledge ; 
and another domnin of pleasing and liberal 
inquiry is included within the r»ng« nf 
polished conversniion. Davy's slyle of 
lecturing in much in favour of himself. 
though not, perhnp.*, entirely suitrd to the 
place ; it has rather n little awkwardness, 
lint It is that air which bespeaks real mo- 
dcaty and good sense i he Is only awkward 
because he cari" --■ '--^ — ' to assume 
that theatricol ncr which 

might have a ti. v-cf. Thin 

was my impression trom bis lecture, I 
have since met Davy In company, and 
was mnch pleased with him ; a great

the most just, upright, and intrepid of 
public men. As a itattmum, 1 never re* 
garded him at all ; he had no knowledge 
of men or BlTairs, to til him for administra* 
tion ; his education bad been very limitedi 
and its defects were not supplied by any 
experience of real political busincaa : bat 
he must always stand high in the list of 
that claaa of public men, the peculiar 
growth of England and of the Houae of 
Commons, who perform great services to 
their country, and hold a considerable 
place in the sight of the world, by fear> 
Icssly expressing in that aasembly the 
censure that is felt by the public, and by 
being as it were the organ of that puhlio 
opinion which, in some measure, ke^a 
our statesmen to their duty. His force 
of character and ability, seconded by his 
singular activity, had, in the present 
absence of all men of genius and as- 
ceudancy from the House, given him a 

Crr-cmincnce, which almost marks the 
LSt years of Pailinmeut with the stamp 
of bis peculiar manner. His loss will lead 
to a change of this : in all points of taste 
and omumeut, and in the skill too and 

Iirudonce of debate, the change may pro- 
)ably be for the letter i but it will he long 
I'pfore the people and ttie constitution are

enlarged as he has ever considered it, in- 
cluding all bis valuable suggestions for 
the improvement of logic in the various

perseverance to mould these into a sys- 
tematic shape ; and that then he would 
proceed immediately to political philo- 
sophy, in which I am confident he would 
produce a work that would excite great 
attention, and impress a lasting influence.

" As Saturday drew near, my anxiety 
fbr Romilly's first public appearance had 
swallowed up every other concern. It 
was not that I felt any doubts of his talent 
for the conduct of fvch an affair (//Orrf 

A tew dnvs after this he wrote as 
(May 19, 1806.) 

" Romilly's success was as great as his 
friends predicted. He spoke for three 
hours and a half, and bis speech might 
be named as the model of the simple 
Style. Had he hazarded more, he mi^ht 
have produced passages of more striking 
effect for a moment ; had he been more 
declamatory, he would hare collected 
more suffrages in the express praise of 
his eloquence. For I have beard it ob- 
served, that the speech had notliing but 
good sense, perfect clearness, and a strong 
cause. The fact is, he kept every one 

A/elville't trial), or that I was not even 
quite sure he would distinguish himself 
greatly ; it was this very confidence which 
filled me with solicitude to witness all the 
circumstances of an occasion, which was 
to reward a long course of severe inde- 
pendence, modest study, and the praclice 
of every virtue, by opening to him a new 
csirccr of utility and fume. He bos now 
placed himself in his rank ; the notoriety 
of his talents and accomplishments ossigus 
him already his station os a public per- 
sonage, and the proofs he cannot fail very 
soon to display of resolute consistency in 
political principles, will so attract to him, 
I am persuaded, the confidence of all 
liberal men, that in the times we have to 
observe or act in he mast have the most 
important weight in the state. Among 
tlie many circumstances which sadden me 
respecting the race of pnbUc men now 
coming upon the stage^ it is a compensa- 
tion almost against them all, that, for a 
period at least, we shall have Romilly's 
exertions and name on the side of liberty 
and justice. Perhaps you will think my 
language exaggerated ; I an only say 
that it very faithfully expresses my pre- 
sent sentiments and expectations ; though 
it is pofkible one's fancy might be heated, 
after having long revered the post tenor 
of his life, to witness it in the very act of 
spreading out into a larger sphere, under 
all the splendid circumstances of the au- 
dience and ceremonial of Westminster

him to silence. His ejpectoratiou (to 
use a delicate expression of Lord Ellcn- 
borougb's) was dreadful to the hearer, 
bat seemed to be full of knowledge and 
sense and acuteneas, as I bare always 
found him, whenever I have had self- 
command sufficient to listen. There was 
one extraordinary oration that night, — Sir 
William Grant's — quite a masterpiece of 
Ui peculiar and miraculous manner. 
Conceire an hour and a half of syllogisms 
itniDg together in the closest tis.>>ue, so 
artfully clear, that you think every 
successive inference unavoidable ; so 
rapid, that you have no leisure to reflect 
where you have been brought from, or to 

see where you are to be eorricd, and so 
dry of ornament or illustration or refresh, 
ment, that the attention is stretched — 
stretched — racked. All this it done with- 
out a single note. And yet, while I 
acknowledge the great vigour of under- 
standing displayed in such performances, 
I have a heresy of my own about Grant's 
ipeaking; it doei> not appear to me of a 
parliamentary cast, nor suited to the dis- 
cussions of n political assembly. Th* 
effect he produces it amazement at bis 
power, not the impression of hit subject ; 
now this ia a mortal symptom. Dcsidet 
this, he gives me u suspicion of sophis- 
try, nliirh hniints uie tlirough his whole 
deduction. Though J have nothing im- 
mediately to produce, 1 feel dissatisfied, 
as if there were something that might be 
said. And after all, there are no traini 
of syllogism nor processes of intricate 
distinctions in subjects that are properly 
political. The wisdom, as well aa the 
common feelings that belong to such 
subjects, lie upon the surface in a few 
plain and broad line«, Tliere is a want 
genius, in being very ingenious ab( 
them, and it belongs to talents of 
second order to proceed with ■ gi 
apparatus of reasoning,'' 810.

it rTcr answera any good pur- 
to treat with so niui-b levity and 
*«vo petvUfkce the errora of a man like 

Burke, or of one who hat written so ex- 
cellent a book as Price. In this respect 
he may have borrowed too much from the 
tone of conversation. When I have lei- 
sure to read the work regularly, 1 mean 
to look very closely whether he la himself 
quite consistent and sufficiently compre- 
bensivc in the doctrine of o»aocra/to>.a, 
which 1 rather suspect is not the case 
with him, nor in his view of the pheno- 
mena of sympathy. In the last doctrine, 
Bt least, I have as yet met with very few 
who are aware of all that has been done 
for ihem by Adam Smith, whose work, 
however iro|>erfect as a theory of moral 
sentiments, always aeemed to me the moat 
scientific and acute description we have 
yet received in any branch of what may

Of tlie degree of Mr. Horner's moral feeling on snbjecU which Ue_

refiiiemenls of classical learning, espccinlly as regards the labour expend 

on polishing, scrubbing, filing, and grinding snndty stubborn metres

tnanv ingenious and learnid gentlemen have bound themselves, as they

(ffith a Piatt.) 

ING learnt that the olJ church 
of St. Uiwreiice at S« indoii, near 
CbrltrDbaai, is about to be consider- 
■bly altered, I beg to put upon record 
in yout Magazine the following ac- 
etniat of it as it existed a few years 

This iDtcresting church consists nf a 
ditocti, a nave, with north and south 
cave aitles, a ilal-rnofeil hexagonal 
towrr at its WfSt end, and a quadran- 
i;ular northern p'rch. The width of 
tbv chancel and llie uavc is equal, vii. 
I3ft. 6in. but that of the aislps is un- 
equal. The tower is irregular, both 
ai to Its sides and angles, and the 
pofch I* also irregular, abutting due 
nr.rthward fioni the norlh-enst side of 
the toKcr. The extreme length of this 
cburcli, mteronllv, is alxiut Gn feet, 
and 111 present extreme breadth 36. 

It would seem, however, that this 
tdifiCF originally con)ii>ted only of the 
cbaoctl. nave, and lower, and that 
llh ' .-.If, Ihf porch, uud the 

o<> 'vcic added at different 

pt)iu-j-. iH I ween the fifteenth and

archei were upenrd when the aisles

Hit ttro semicircalar arcliiyolti with 
[« ntitiag /iuei*-iikc mb'vch i but 

on its soutliern face these arches arc 
single, there being no pilaster. The 
arch Into the north aisle waa cer- 
tainly made, as I have above «up> 
pused, by breaking through the old 
nave wall, and is a wide obtusely 
pointed archway with chamfered 

The archway between the nave and 
tower was, however, formed at the 
first building of this church. Its 
archivoli, westward, has the fascial 
subarches, represented in the accom- 
panying Plate ; but, eastward, it is a 
simple semicircle springing from wall 
piers with imposts, like that or the 
south aisle pier, which arc continued 
around them, and along the nave walls, 
as a string course. 

From the existence of some corbels 
at the conjunction of the nave and 
chancel walls, it would seem that there 
was once a rood loft, approached by 
stairs iu a regular rood turret, of wbicu 
a ruinous mass of masonry outside 
was probably the foundation. 

The most interesting feature of this 
Church is its tower, which is, as afore- 
said, not a regular hexagon ; having ita 
western side longer than the others, 
and Its N.W. and S.W. angles of 65 
degrees, while the southern angle ia 
only of 50, as I presume the noiiliera 
angle also to be. Uut it ia difficult to 
speak on this point accurately, some of 
its angles and sides being enveloped 
in the more modern parts of thischurch, 
and the tower walls now varying in 
thickness from 3 feet 2 inches, to 
nearly 3 feet. Interiorly, at each 
corner is a b\eni!iet W\t-«n%«L%t& «.<&' 
lumn, but tWu t^p'xV^Vs a,ie Vv\Ok^t\x Vj

n chamlier, and which, froni the ab- 
sence uf any interior BUircate, Kiid 
certain traces of a stair and duornay 
on its uutsidei could have been only 
thereby cnttrcd. 

The pavement of this tower is lower 
than that of the nave, aiid. If originally 
so. such disparity i* perhaps irtdi- 
cative of its having been a galilee or 
narthex for penitents, in contradis- 
tinction to the? higher nave for less 
unholy person^^, and tu the still more 
elevated floors of the chancel and 
sanctuary for the priesthood. 

Another peculiarity of Swindon 
Church is the pcusition of its ancient 
entrance, which is not, (as one would 
elpect from the shape of the tower,) 
through its west tnd, but through its 
north-east side. This entrance is a 
scmicircularly-hcailed aichway adorn- 
ed with two round mouldings springing 
(Vom nouked columns, the capitals of 
which consist of a cleft cushion under 
an abacus similar to that of the other 
parts of this building- The exterior 
doorway of the porch, and a doorway 
into the south aisle, arc of Tudor 
form, but without the characteristic 
square head. 

The upper windows of the tower 
have two scmicircularly-headed open- 
ings divided by a balustre-IIke shaft 
with an early Norman capital. Below, 
in the western face, has been intro- 
duced a pointed window under a 
flowered dripstone on corbels. But 
otherwise this tower is unadorned ex- 
cept by a string course under its pre- 
sent eaves. The only other windows 
of this church deserving notice are 
two trcfoliatcd lancets in the north 
wall of the chancel ; the cast window, 
and a window of the south aisle con-

I cannot conclude this account wi' 
out deprecating the alterations p 
posed to he made in Ihi* church 
cording to a plan designed by 
I'ulljamcs, architect and county si 
veyor, and of which prints have bi 
circulated under the sanction of 11 
reverend Rector. 

This plan chiefly conaists in the 
moval of the Internal maasive wal 
and piers of the nave, togelher w 
the south and west walls of the soul 
aisle ; retaining the present chani 
the north aisle, and the east wall 
the south aisle. But the tower it is 
proposed to disfigure by making an 
opening through its south-eastern 
wall into a vestry, whereby its cha- 
racter would be at once obliterated, 
and its stability materially impaired ! 
and instead of the piers in the nave, 
pillars of light and meagre charact^ 
are to be eubstlluted ; — these alte 
tions, which will cost not less tbi 
I , lOti/. or 1.200?. providing only an 
cession of fifty- seven sitting's 
must further remark that the tower 
cornice, as reprcscnlcd in Mr. Kull- 
jaroes't design, is clumsy and un- 
sightly ; and that a short conical spire 
would be the termination most appro- 
priate to the (tyle. But why not 
leave the tower in its present singular 
serai-ccclesiastical and semi-castel- 
lated character f We have no doubt 
that the exclusion of the weather, and 
a few iron ties, judiciously applie< 
arc all that it requires ; and, should 
larger church be necessary for Uie il 
creasing population of Swindon pari 
let a new one be builti retaining 
interesting old tower, as Its west 
end, and in accordance with its N< 
man character. 

Yours, kc. PLA??TAOErnrT.

stilions as they wish to practise, hopii 
thereby to induce him to embrace th 
opinions. Thus, since it is well known, 
from the very nature of man, that there ia 
nothing of which men are more afraid than 
of the los» of their property and children, 
therefore the worshippers of fire declared 
and circulated the opinion, that, if they 
did not cause their sons or daughters to 
paiui through the fire, all their child 
would die ; there can be no doubt, there 
fori', but that every one would hast 
diligently to perform it, both from thcif! 
great love to their children, and fear of 
losing them, and because of the facility of 
the art, nothing more t>eing required than 
to Itad Ihr child through the fire, the 
performance of which was rendered still 
more probable by the children being co 
initted to the care of the women, of whoi 
intcllci'tual weakness and conieijuent cri 
dence in such things no one is ignorani 
Hence the Scripture vehemently oppos( 
the action, and uses such argumen 
agninst it as against no other kind 
idolatry whatever, — * He hath given 
hi"! seed to Moloch, to defile my sanctnai 
and to profane ray Holy Name.' (Levil 
XX. 'I.) Moses therefore declares in the 
name of God, that, by that very act by 
whicli they ei|>ected to preserve the lif ' 
of their children, by that act tliey shi 
destroy it ; because God will exterminal 
both him who commits tlie crime, am

Passitig through the fire to Moloch. 






The origin of this practice may 
obviously be traced to the fact of the 
ataio»pbcrc'B being purified by fire, 
and infectious disorders thereby kept 
off. The next step, which was from 
truth to superstition, would be to sup- 
pose that fire would act os a pre- 
ventive by anticipation. Afterwards 
ensued those horrid practices of burn- 
ing children in the fires of Moloch, 
■with which every reader of the Car- 
thaginian history is familiar. (See 
particularly the articles Moloch and 
Thphtt in the Dictionnaire Mytholo- 
gique of M. Noel, 2 vols. 8vo.' Paris, 
1823, 4th edition.) 

Arthur Young, (father of the cele- 
brated agriculturist,) has collected 
several classical illustrations of this 
practice, in his work on Idolatrous 
Corruptions in Religion, p. 117. and 
the passage is given at length by Mr. 
Townley, p. 360, note xl. without, 
however, correcting the slight mistake 
of " the Council o/Trullo' tor'nTrullo, 
aa he might have done. Mr. Townley 
also notices similarcustoms at Athens, 
ia Scotland in the time of James I. 
(or Clh in the Scottish succession.) 
and in Cornwall, but without ad- 
verting to that in Ireland. M. de 
Sainmoie. in his Histoire de Rus»ie, 
(written to accompany the plates of 
M. David.) mentions this practice as 
still existing in Kussia, when speaking 
of the idol KouPALu.

Arthur Young has referred, in 
lustration of these piactices, to Virg 
JLa. xi. 78.'i-9; see also a note In 
the Oifoid edition of that classic,

Mr. Mackay, (Popular Deln»ions, vol

An able review of Mr. Jesse's Mi 
moirs of the Stoartf, in the Gent. M 
for February 1840, is well worth con- 
sulting relative to James. 

Far, indeed, was that age from 
D'Aubign^'s representation, and moi 
profligate as well as unprincipled in 
its emergent cliaiacters, both Pro- 
testants and Catholics, The massaci 
of St. Bartholomew forms, it is true, 
terrible exception ; but Philip H. was 
not more odious than Henry VHI. or 
Christiern H. monsters in robes of 
royalty, and no court could be more 
deeply sunk in debasement than that 
of James, where we are assured by an 
eminent contemporary. Sir John Har- 
rington, that drunkenness was not 
unfrequent indulgence even with fi 
males of the first class. (Nugn Ant 
qu:c. Park's edition, vol. i. p. 349< 
Although in the reign of Henry VH 
there were on our statute-book on 
fourteen or fifteen capital offenci 
which, under George HI. exceeded o 
hundred and fifty, the number of 
executions by the axe or halter, during 
that tyrant's role, amounted to seventy- 
two thousand, and, under Elizabeth, 
to seventeen thousand six hundred. 
(See Sir H. Cavendish's Parliamentary 
Debates of 27th November, 1770.) 
The History of England, according to 
Voltaire, should be written by the 
executioner. And to the delusion of

than CothoUc states, surpassed in 
sanguinary effusion even the )iolo-

both sides have adopted the song of the

See also Chandler'e American Trials,

There would, in fact, seem to have 
existed rather a rivalry of evil than of 
good between the variant sects of that 
period i and nothing can less bear the 
test of history than the arrogated 
moral superiority of Protestant sove- 
reigns or people. On this subject I 
can advance testimony which the 
marked favour manifested by M. D'Au- 
bign^ for its source, should powerfully 
weigh with him. At page 241 of his 
third volume, the Arnauld family, so 
prominent in the annals of IVirt-Koyal, 
is mentioned in terms of highest praise, 
andcomplacently, though most untruly, 
aggregated to the abettors of reform, in 
our controvertist's sense of the word. 
The chief of the name in talent, cele- 
brity.and influence, was, beyond doubt, 
the younger Antoine, distinguished, 
consequently, kot i^xh* ""l fffpaaiv, 
as " Le Grand Arnauld," who, in his 
"Apologie pour les Catholiqucs cen- 
tre lea Faussetds de M. Jurieu," vol. 
ii. p. 332, (edit. 1CS2, in 12mo.) thus 
exprfsiea his view of the question. 
" Cette premiere ferveur apparente, 
doot ces pr^tendus r<!formateurs t&- 
chaient d'^blouir le monde, s'est bien- 
tAt evanouie. Dieu a renonvell^ si

this day, however unjustly, the

the Continent as destitute of all

emphatically Protestant people of 
England, can imagination form a more 
hideous picture of corruption, than 
that exhibited in the parli.nmentary 
reports, more especially in those by 
Lord Ashley? Let it be placed in 
parallel with the description presented 
to us by Mr. Borrow, the Bible 
Society's chosen missionary, of the 
Spanish people, the most t'atholic is 
Europe, and yet, in the delineation of 
this irrefragable authority, the purest 
and noblest, notwithstanding the con- 
stant misnile, civil and political, of the 
country. And, if Ignorance of the 
Bible be a reproach to the one, do we 
find it better understood by the other, 
who reckon Goliath and Pontius Pilate 
among the disciples of our Lord t Nor 
should it be forgotten, that to Spain 
we owe the riasT Christian edition 
of the Old Testament in the original

ference from this bold assertion would 
be, that to Protestantism sacred music 
was most, if not exclusively, indebted; 
while on the contrary, it was from 
the sphere of Catholicity that the 
alleged impulse proceeded, and there, 
too, has its subsc'iucnt influence be< 
ever most felt i for, with the reserve 
Handel, the family of Bach, and vei 
few more, it would be difficult to dii 
cover a name of first distinction in tl 
opposite rank.«. GlUck may have be 
born of Protestant parents ; but '. 
passed his whole professional life with 
Catholics, who, as I have heard Bom< 
of his friends alhrm, always considen 
him as of their body ; and every Itali 
composer, from Palestri na, the "Musi 
Princeps" of the sixteenth cenlury] 
to Rossini of our own day, was, as 
might be expected, a Catholic. And 
even of tiie Germans, the most emineol 
— iiaydu, the matchless Ilaydn, 
Dr. Burney (iv. 590) distinguishes 
him, Mozait, Weber, and Hcelhoven, 
all Catholics, arc surely unsurpassed 
in emulation of merit. As the un- 
deniable result of relative celebrity it 
the arts, the Catholics, in this a 
other branches, will be found to oul 
number their opponents fourfold 
least. And, for those hymns, ofwhii 
with their accompanying chaunt, tl 
composition and effects are so laud 
whatever may have been their com' 
bined power, it will hardly be ur^ 
in comparative influence with the 
universal admiration and deep pathos 
of those of Rome, on which the great 
masters of harmony have, for centuries, 
exercised their talents. It was not 
from his native idiom that Goethe 
selected the hymn, which so sensitively 
affected poor Gretchcn, (the familiar 
abbreviation of Margaret.) in thi 
cathedral, when the Evil Spirit 
■' Bozer Gtist," impressed on hi 
mind her contrasted feelings, on hei 
ing this pious clTusion, "the Dii 
Itie," in her days of former innocence 
and actual guilt, (Faust, p. 323, ed. 
Tubingen, 1825 ) . The " Stabat Mater" 
of Rossini excites at this moment the 
ruthusiaslic applause of the musical 
world J and the touching canticle has 
ever been a theme of predilection and

Gregory the Great, Gregory VII. (Ilil- 
debrand,) Innocent 111. with several 
other poutifl's, are numbered in the list uf 
their compoieni among whom Thomas 

Aqainei must also he distinguished. By 
desire of Pope Urban IV. he wrote, in 
136'2, the " Lauda Sion Salratorem," in 
celebration of the feast of " Corps 
ChriKti," and sonic of the stanzas are I 
striking spirit. I may instance the fif

With still less restrained hardihood 
of assertion, Lucas Cranach, a Ger 
man painter, a friend and follower 
Luther, is called, at page 242 of the 
third volume, " the great master of 
the age." It would not be easy to 
evince greater contempt, I must say, 
for the taste or inlormatlon of his 
readers than these words betray, and 
thus confidently to elevate io supre- 
macy of position, an almost unluiown 
artist, in presence of the glories of the 
profession, and of that age which 
generated Michael Angclo, Raffaelle, 
Titian, the omniscient da Vinci, Sebas- 
tian del Plombo, Gialio Romano, 
Bastiniano, Corrcggio.Ccllini, Holbein, 
with so many more, the contempora- 
ries of M. D'AubigD^'s obscure and 
most ill-chosen champion. And if, in 
the comprehensive latitude of the 
eulogist's language, we stretch our 
comparative view to the succeeding 
years of that century, what a refulgent 
mass of Catholic renown signalizes, 
hy birth or achievement, its further 
course, from Paul Veronese to Claude 
Lorrain, born in 1600, and its last 
offspring ! Until lately the name of 
Cranach would be vainly sought for 
in our dictionaries ; nor was it other- 
wise in France, ns I learned from the 
curators of the Louvre, where some of 
his works arc now, however, to be 
seen. The most admired is " St. 
John in the Wilderness," in which 
Meianclhon figures ns the Saint; but 
another, Hercules and Omphale, re- 
presents John Krcderick, the reformed 
Elector of SoTony. encircled by his 
miflrofcK, ftllhough the recognised 
head of Protestantism, and declared 
chief of its confederation, the league 
of Smalkalde. But, in every sense, 
Cranach was of subordinate instead of 
primary talent ; " son dessein *tant 
mesquin, et d"un caractJrc nppauvri." 
(See Hubcr's Catalogue du f'nbinct dc 
M. Brindes, l^ipzig. I7!)<, 8vo.) It 
was thus that Pope blazoned the fame 
of poor Jervas, now only known by 
bis translation of Don Quixote, but

aociale of hU own immortality. 
"Bmit with the love of 5l«trr-«ii» we c«mo, 
And met congenial, ininKtln^ flume wilh

To the flood of light poured from the 
bosom of catholicity on this challenged 
field of contest, what character of com - 
meosurate splendour, we may a«lc, 
does the adverse side produce, in any 
degree like a fitting competition : Eng- 
land offers no transcendent name ; and 
in the sister walk, in architecture, 
loigo Jones, the undisputed chief, 
adhered to the ancient faith, while, 
from the whole compass of Profestanl- 
ism, one great master, Albert Durer, 
truly great, yet single and solitary, 
issues of equivalent eminence. Vesari

edacntcd by a clergyman, of the Roman 
Catholic communion, wha<>e mass he must 
most frequently have served when the rite 
could only be celebrated in domestic 
privacy ; but he merely refers to Iminh, 
chap. vii. He. and to Virgil'a fourth 
Eclogue, or Pollio. Dr. Joboaon, in bit 
Teraiou of the Messiah, does not advert to 
this mOKt probable source of Pope's

existence of Cranach, but devotes many 
a page nf his attractive volumes (Fla> 
rence, Giuuli, l5Ga) to the eulogy of 
Durer, whose genius, inferior per* 
haps to none in native endowment, 
solely wanted that refinement of taaUr, 
or ultimate finish, which the contem- 
plation and rivalship of excelleocr, 
then aad now chiefly presented io 
Italy, could alone impart, to rank 
amongst the foremost of his professioD, 
M. D'Aubigne, however, most un- 
authorizedly (vol. tii. p. 243) assigna 
his master-pieces to the period which 
fallowed, in order to make thera tht 
inspirations of, his conversion ; for 
the best of thero, the "Crucifixion," 
which now adorns the imperial gallery 
of Vienna, bears the distinct date of 
1511. liis " Execution of the Mar- 
tyrs " is marked 1508 ; and his "Adam 
and Kve."with the "Adoration of the 
Magi," eoually anteredcd the Refor- 
mation. This event he suivived only 
a few years, during which he certainly 
produced nothing superior io achieve- 
ment to these, his acknowledged mas- 
terpieces. As au engraver his merit 
was equally great, and, from the wider 
dissemination of his productions, 
much more diffusively known. See 
Gent. Mag. for July 1839, p. 34, and 
August p. 118, with Mr. Jackson's 
"History of Wood Engraving." (1839.) 

" The church of Rome," wrote 8lf 
Oavid Wilkie (Life by A. Cunning- 
ham, vol. i.) from Italy in Ifl27, " h«a 
ever been the nurse of arts, but paint- 
ing has been its favourite child. Tbe 
art of painting seems made for the 
service of Christianity — would that the 
Catholics were not the only sect that 
had seen its advantages." Mr. West- 
macott in his Lectures is not less 
enipliatic, while far more extensive in 
the Asaertion of Catholic patrooagp, 
embracing as it did the whole circle of 
the Fine Arts.

bat several of that number died ia 
early life. TIioso wlio survived to 
more advnnccd years were as follow 1 

1. George, of whom, being the la«t 
MMvivinf; male descendant of the ra< 
mily, I will speak herealter. 

2. John, who was lnooght up t^j 
the naval profession, and after serving 
the accustomed period as a midshlp«i 
man, was appointed, by Vice-Adra. Sir 
Peter Parker, then Commander-in 
Chief of the Fleet at Jamaica, Sccodi 
Lieut, of H.M.S. the Lion. Th 
promotion took place on the 9th of 
March, 1780 j and, after remaining 
about three years in the Lion, Lieu> 
tenant Bover was transferred to 
M.M.S. the Canada. He did not, 
however, remain long in that ship, 
for, in 1784, we find him holding tha 
commission of Lieutenant in H.M.S. 
Centurion, of 60 guns, of which also 
he was Lieutenant at Aims. Whilst 
filling this honourable position he waa 
unfortunately 'eized with illness, and 
before many weeks had elapsed fell a 
victim to the climate of the West 
Indies, in the prime of life, and de> 
votedly attached to his profession, in 
which, had his life been spared, there 
is every reason to believe he would 
have considerably distinguished him- 
self. In one of his letters 10 a friend, 
in England during his station at Ja. 
maica, he writes in these spirited 
terms; "On board the Lion. We hare 
had a tolerable successful cruize, but 
it seems very strange to hear in every 
other quarter of some brave naval ac- 
tion, whilst we hitherto, except during 
the alarm from the Comte U'Estang, 
have cruized in perfect safety, and in- 
tuited the enemy even at the mouth 
of their own harbour. I must con- 
fess," he adds, " it is highly unsatis- 
factory to be so totally excluded from 
the opportunity of gaining credit in 
one's profession." 

3. Henry, who was also brought 
up to the naval profession, and served 
for some lime on board H.M.S. Sand- 
wich, but was, alas! cut off in the 
vigour of youth even at a still earlier 
period in his career than bis brother 
John. He died at sea whilst »erving 
as a midshipman, but 1 am not awara 
to what ship he was then attached.

anerwards rxcliangccl into the 4l9t, 
which lattui' corps he joined at Hilsen 
Barracks in 1"'*". He served for 
some lime with this regiment in Ire- 
land, and on the 28th February, 1790, 
was promoted to the rank of Lieu- 
tenant. The •lUl Foot stood St this 
period, I should say, as high in mi- 
litary estimation as nuy regiment in 
the IJritish army. It was then com- 
manded by Major-General Stirling, 
and under the Lieut, -Colonelcy o( Sir 
Charles Gordon ; and the great hero 
of the age, the Duke of Wellington, 
was serving in it — a youthful subal- 
tern — having joined the regiment in 
the same year as Lieut. Dover. In 
17Q3 the 4 1 St was ordered out to the 
West Indies, and Lieut. Uover accord- 
ingly sailed with his regiment in the 
latter part of that year from Cork. He 
had no sooner, however, arrived at his 
destination than he began to exhibit 
evident symptoms of decline from the 
effects of the climate, and before the 
end of the year following the grave had 
closed on another member of this fa- 
mily, whose proftssional career pro- 
mised in after years to have shed a 
lustre on his name. He died univer- 
sally respected and beloved both by 
the officers and men of the regiment, 
and having deservedly gained a cha- 
racter by his honorable and upright 
conduct, which long survived in the 
recollection of his companions in arms. 
5. I'eler. who was born fith Oc- 
tober, 177'^, and, adopting his father's 
profession, entered the navy in 1789. 
as a volunteer on board H.M.S. Per- 
£CU3. In the course of the same year 
he was removed to the Queen, and in 
1768 we find him serving on board 
H.M.P. Crown, a 64-gun ship, then 
bearing the broad pennant of the Ho- 
Dourable Commodore, afterwards Ad- 
miral Corowallis. Here young Bover 
contracted an intimacy and friendship 
with the late Sir Christopher Cole.

lie had also the r 


come the favoured proteg(5 of Admiral 
AlHock, who, in one of his letters to 
the family, after speaking of his con- 
duct in the service, adds: "A Dover 
will always find friends in the navy; 
it is a name which will ever be dear 
to the service." Our hero was ap- 
pointed a Lieutenant of H.M.S. Mi- 
nerva aoih Sept. 1793, and was sub- 
sequently for some time in the Ex- 
cellent, and the Caesar. In the year 
1796 he was appointed First Lieu- 
tenant of H.M.S. London, of 98 guns, 
bearing the flag of Admiral Sir Joho 
Colpoys, G.C.D. ; and his brave and 
intrepid conduct as an officer of that 
ship, on the occasion of the Mutiny at 
the Nore in the following year, is 
matter of historical record. The mu- 
tineers, it will be remembered, had de- 
termined upon holding a convention 
of delegates on board the London, 
which the adroirni as determinedly 
opposed ; and the former, finding that 
they were resisted, fiied upon the ship, 
and wounded a marine officer. Lieut. 
Dover seeing this gave orders to (he 
marines to fire upon the delegates, 
which they did, and five of the party 
were killed. The seamen of the Lon- 
don, in consequence of the death of 
the delegates by the firing of the ma- 
rines, then seized Lieutenant Bover, 
and were proceeding to suspend him 
from the yard-arm for the orders he 
had given, but through the interces- 
sion of several of the crew, by whom 
he was greatly beloved, and in con- 
sequence of Admirol Colpoys assuring 
them that he had acted strictly ia 
compliance with the orders received 
from the Admiralty, they consented to 
spare his life, and contented them- 
selves by making him and the other 
officers close prisoners to their cabin*. 
Lieut. Dover's letters about this period 
are of so interesting a natuic, that 1

up yesterday with cine sail of the line 
and several frigates, nnd went as high as 
the wind and tide would allow, which was 
within about four miles of Ihcni. He 
then sent a frigate tu summon them to 
surrender, and there is no doubt but that 
they will be in our possession tliis day 
either by capitulation or battle. The 
weather has been most uncommonly bad 
erer since we left England, and for eight 
days never allowed us to renture near the 
coast. On the ninth a deceitful gleam of 
aunshioe brought us to an anchor off 
Camperdown, but a sudden and violent 
gale of wind compelled us to put imme- 
diately to sea with the loss of a great 
many anchors, &c. At that time they so 
little expected us in this pnrt that there 
would hare been no opposition ; but our 
being driven olT the coast gave them time 
to collect about five thousand troops, 
amongst which were two b.ittalions of 
riflemen. On Monday last we again 
anchored close to the shore within musket 
ahot. The whole coast here is a range of 
sand hills, low, and particularly calculated 
for the deadly operatious of these rifle- 
men, whom we observed stationing tliem- 
aelves singly in the most advantogeons 
situations. On Tuesday morning at four 
o'clock the flat boats advanced to the 
inner line of gun-boats and bomb.-., when 
the general Arc was opened with a tre- 
mendous cannonade along the beach, 
whidi was soon well cleared, and the 
boots moved forward with three cheers in 
the highest order, and almost at the same 
moment Seven thousand men were landed, 
the A<lmirnl the Arst man on i^hore, and 
after him the General. You will have 
seen by the (iorettc that tlie souUiern di-

|u articled in I7S0 to a highlyre&pect- 
Ble firm in Warrington, with whom 
he remained until nearly the dote of 
his clerkship. From thence he re- 
Hired to London, and completed hia 
lidies in the chambers of Mr. Manley, 
'ui eminent practitioner in the Temple. 
He continued with this gentleman a 
few months after his admission, and 
then returned to Warrington, where, 
rafter a short time, he entered into 
lirtnership with Messrs. NichoUon* 
Fflf that town. With these gentlemen 
he enjoyed for many years a consider- 
able practice, and established a highly 
respectable connection in Warrington 
and its neighbourhood. Through the 
interest of his sister Maria, hs was a 
few years after his return into the 
^Lcountry introduced to the notice of 
^Hbe late Lord Maynard, who appointed 
^^■im receiver and auditor of his estates, 
^Hkod in this capacity, and in the more 
confidential relation of a private friend 
and adviser, he acquitted himself so 
I greatly to the satisfaction of that 
loblc liird, and so won his esteem and 
egard, that by hia will lie bequeathed 
hira the very handsome legacy of

lanor of Waltharastow, including 
Shern Hall, in Kssex, and appointed 
pim one of his executors. With these 
kniple means at his dispo!>al, Mr. 
lover naturally felt inclined to free 
himself from the engagements of 
business, and shortly after the death 
of Lord Maynard, which took place in 

11834, he began to withdraw himself 
jiroro the active duties of the profession, 
pf which he had been during a long 
peries of years so honourable and up- 
right a member. He resided after-

Til bl Castle of Berkharopsteold is so | 
famous in English history, as having 
been the residence of the Black Prince 
ofter his return from Boideaux. that) 
an account of its actual condition at [ 
tliis time will not be without interest 
to your readers. 

This castle stands in the parish of 
Berkhampstcad, at the foot of a mo- 
derate bill which occupies its northern 
and ea.«tcrn sides, and the groun4^ 
upon its other sides Is tlat, ualurallyj 
marshy, and capable of being flooded] 
without much difficulty. 

The castle is composed of a central] 
or inner bailey, au inner fosse, a| 
middle bailey, an outer fosse, and M 
third or outer bailey, of small extent* 
nnil partially provided with a fosse. 
There is uImj a niuund attached to thej 
inner bailey, and a sort uf ravelin in 
advance of the fosse on the noith| 

Tilt i« an irregular ovntl 

court ui .'lilc «izr, surroundcdl 

by a wall, auil cmitaininK the r»maina|

thai Is opposed to the remainder de> 
ruandcd an additional line of defence, 
snii this is given by the. ravelin and 
the outer bailey and fosse. 

The ground begins to rise towarda 
the north-west, and here is placed the 
ravelin. This is a triangular platform 
of earth, slightly raised, placed on the 
outside of the fosse, aod having ■ 
small fosse of its own. It bean bo 
traces of masonry. 

North of this commences the outtr 
baiity. This is a lofty bank of earth, 
forming the segment of a circle, and 
thus defending the place on tbenorth- 
eastam side. Its rear forms the out- 
side or counterscarp of the middle 
fosse ; its top is of no great breadth, 
level, and bearing no traces of either 
wall, parapet, or banquette. At ita 
western end it terminates in a con- 
siderable mound or bastion of earth ; 
at its other, or southern end, it ter- 
minates also abruptly, being cut off 
by a part of the middle fosse. It ia 
also cut across near its middle, and 
thus divided into two independent 
parts, whilst its fosse is fed with 
water from the rear. Along the front 
of this bank project seven large bas- 
tions of earth, commanding the inter- 
mediate curtains and the approaches, 
after the manner of a modern forti- 

The bailey is defended by an oa<er 
font, also for tbe most part wet. The 
ground exterior to this fosse rises ra- 
pidly, so as to give considerable fa- 
cilities to those who should attack 
tlie castle on this side. 

The castle, as it at present stands, 
is undoubtedly Edwardian, and pos- 
sibly erected by the Black Prince or 
his father. The general plan, the 
muderale thickness of its walls, and 
the skill shewn in the disposition of 
its fortifications, may be considered 
as conclusive arguments npon this 
point. The mound may bo of Nor- 
man date; if so, the additional worka 
have been moat skilfully disposed, sO; 
&■> (o derive the greatest benefit front 
ita presence, by causing ii to occupy 
the weakest side. Tticro is howcv 
no reason stronger than general an 
logy for regarding this mound af'

Tbcy arc however probably original. 

It is singular that the middle and 
outer bailey should be without either 
walls or parapets, since, in the event 
of their being taken, they would en- 
able the enemy seriously to annoy 
the castle. It is to be desired that a 
careful Eurvef were made of this cas- 
tle, the works of which would pro- 
bably throw much light upon the 
ancient aystem of fortification. 


Mr, Urban, Bath, May II. 
Til AT there is much of needless com- 
plexity, and a useless effort at a sort of 
mechanical certitude, in the differences 
of mood and figure appertaining to the 
Aristotelian logic, will be denied, 1 
think, by few. The objection!" to the 
system, however, as a whole, must 
chiefly have arisen from the misuse 
and the abuse of logical forms in ages 
of ignorance and barbarism, for they 
seem to proceed on the supposition 
that, if wc give any place to the logic 
of the schools, all converise should be 
turned into debate, and every reason 
be stated syllogistically. Ttie objections 
first started have been continued by 
the fashion to run down what has been 
once depreciated, and in some quarters, 
1 suspect, by the lurkiugs of envy to- 
ward literary rivals. Thus, even that 
eminent man Dr. George Campbell 
(lUietoric, b. I, ch. 6) araid aheap of 
words inveighs against syllogism as if 
designed for an instrument of original 
discovery, rather than of detection of 
pretended truths, and confirmation of 
real truths already known. The fol- 
lowing is the first example at which 
he carps : "All animals feel ; all horses 
arc animals ; therefore all horses 
feel." Hereupon he remarks, " It is 
impossible that any reasonable man, 
who really doubts whether ahorse has 
ffeJinK or i« a meu- automaton, should 
he convinced by this argument, for," 
&c. &c. But what vKUdiiiiblv nyjw- 
nra/ of 80 strange a notion would not 
first intjuirc of the doubter whether he 
did or did not believe Iluvl nuinials 
arc sentient beings. If 
their p<^wTr ufseusation, ' 
conclusrrely shows thr fully of 
jdonbt. If he drniod the existence 

would be otldrcsscd from other topirlj 
tending to show that animulity not 
sensibility are invariably associated 
If, indeed, he made an exception of 
horses, while allowing sensation to 
others similarly made and moving 
creatures, the rrasonablr couitc would 
be no longer to argue with him. And 
this last remark 1 think a sufficient 
answer to Dr. Campbell's further ob- 
jection, — " It is possible that one may 
believe the conclusion who denies the 
major." Diit men begin to sec lb« ] 
folly of pretending to discard that 
without which Ihcy can no more reason 
than they can talk without air. 

Your correspondent who signs 
S. (May, p. 481,) has done tha 
justice to logic which Dr. Whatelc/J 
its professed expositor, has failed 
do. If, to quote your correspondent^ 
words, the archbishop asserts of 
certain problem, that " a logical de 
monstration of it is impossible," as 
suredly the master himself would hai^ 
disclaimed such an exposition, bii4 
have authoritatively pronounced that" 
his rules are universally true or utterly 
fallacious. Professor Newman also 
(late of Bristol College), in his iostruct- 
ivc lectures on logic, article Syllogism, 
speaks of the right reverend logician 
as under a mistake, observing of the 
celebrated argument against infinite 
divisibilitj-, that it was " Dr. Whatc^ 
ley's .... business to reduce (t 
sophism to syllogistic) form, and 
show us that, when reduced, it offcnde 
some of the Aristotclic rules (whcrea^ 
says Mr. Newman, it depends) on 
false premiss suppressed." This pr 
miss, a mathematical one, he addil 
mathematical also is the solation bj 
De Crousaz given us by your correi 
pondent. But mathematics, I confcw 
arc beyond ray km. Conceiting, tooti 
that inalliemalics rest on logic, tliatj 
consequently there must bv t>uiiic plaid

Mr. Urbah, Northampton, Feb. 27. 

iN the report of the proceedings of 
the Numismatic Society in your Ja- 
nuary number, p. 'S, I observe a slight 
mistake relative to the coin belonging 
to Mr. Alfred Bccslcy of Banbury. It 
is stated that on the obverse is an ear 
of corn, and on the reverse a horse, 
wheel, &c. with the letters qvantbo. 
1 have in my possession n gold British 
coin of similar fabric, with the horse, 
wheel, &c. on the concave side, and 
the reverse or convex side quite plain. 
Respecting the inscription on Mr. 
Beesley's coin, I find, from a very 
careful perusal of it, that it reads 
QVASTE, and the symbolic mark re- 
sembles one on my coin, which ia 
without an inscription. In the plate 
of Symbols on British Coins, given in 
the Numismatic Chronicle, Nos. 26 
and 27 are similar. A coin belonging 
to Mr. Cuff, and probably from the 
same die, has been engraved in the 1st 
vol. of the Numismatic Journal, and 
described in page 22.'), No. 8. And 
in the last edition of Kuding the 
Bume coin is again engraved. In both 
woiks the reverse is described as bear- 
ing a fern-leaf, and not an ear of corn ; 
from the probable imperfection of the 
com they differ so far ns regards the 
legend. In the latter publication it 
is given caiii, and what has been 
conjcctuicd to be o, or the symbolic 
mark, on Mr. Beesley's coin, fiirina 
part of the neck of the horse. In the 
Niiniisnialic Jiiurnnl ihey give tlie in- 
sciiption CATTi. Twu of my unti- 
quariaii friends have sugce^led that

THE April morn was bright and mild,

"Twill be a fine sunshiny day ;

" I'll pass the happy hours away." 

"Twill rain ere noon," the old man replied : 

" When you have lived as long as I, 
You will know better than confide 

In this sod air and glowing sky." 

" Oh ! " cried the boy, " if this is all 

We gain by growing gray like you— 
To learn what show'rs at noon will fall. 

While yet the morning heavens are blue, 

" I'd rather know, as I do now. 

Nothing about the coming hours. 
And, while it's fair, with careless brow 

Enjoy the sun and gather flowers." 

" Ay, but, my hoy, as we grow old," 

Sigh'd that aged man, " we learn much more ; 

Truths which, in youth, we're often told, 
But never feel as truths before ; — 

"That love is but a feverish dream i 

That friendships die as soon at born ; 
That pleasures which the young estMin 

Are only worthy of our scorn ; 

"That what the world desires as good. 

Riches and power, rank and praise. 
When sought, and won, and understood, 

But disappoint the hopes they raise ; 

"That life is like this April day, 

A scene of fitful light and gloom ; 
And that our only hope and stay 

Centre in realms beyond the tomb."

eventually established and received as 
truth, and in many cases a priority of 
discovery was claimed by filching pre- 
tenders. They were criticised and ri- 
diculed not only by ignorant sciolists, 
incompetent to estimate their won- 
derful grasp of intellect, or the value 
of the product of their labours, but 
by many eminent scholars and scien- 
tific men of their day, who, startled 
by novelties subversive of their educa- 
tional prejudices, rejected truth with- 
out the examination necessary to as- 
certain it. Many candid and honest 
critics have afterwards acknowledged 
the injustice of such hasty criticism. 
It is not, therefore, for so humble and 
insignificant a writer as myself to 
complain of similar treatment. 

Few men possess temper and pa- 
tience necessary to investigate novel- 
lies repugnant to received opinions, 
and the established dogmas of the 
schools. Prejudice arms them to 
the teeth against inquiry ; common 
sense and reason are of no avail, at- 
tention will not be accorded. My 
discovery of the identity of the Hi- 
bcrno-Celtic with the Etruscan, and 
the alHnity of both with the Phoe- 
nician, is obnoxious to more than 
common ridicule and objection. The 
Irish language and literature have ever 
been the objects of sneers and butt of 
contempt, partly from not being un- 
derstood, but more from the ignorant 
pretensions of ill-informed individuals 
professing to understand it. The 
very few, if any, general scholars who 
understood Gaelic, have not given that 
critical analysis and philological re- 
search necessary to enable them to 
judge of its value and importance, 

Not being cither an Irish or Scot- 
tish Gael, I have no national prejudice 
to gratify in endeavouring to establish 
the antiquity and philological as well 
as historical importance of the Hi- 
berno-Ccltic. For twenty years I 
have given it much attention. I com- 
menced my labours under the prejudice 
of all Englishmen ; but evidence pro- 
duced conviction, oftcr a long and un- 
remitted inquiry, that the lime is not 
far distant when the identity abov^~ 
mentioned will be universally admit 
ted. It only requires a candid and 
fair investigation to produce that 

I may not live to tee it, but I should

Bclf had I Dot publialied the result of 
my tn'ing but gratifyiog labours, 
which very few, if any, may have the 
opportunity, if they possessthe incli- 
nation, to undertake. 

Since writing the above your June 
No. has come to band. I am induced, 
from its perusal, to trespass somewhat 
more upon your patience with a few 
further remarks. 

The mystical rubbish about Noah, 
and the arkitc deities, Milhraic cavet, 
helio-arkHr thfolngy rngrnfled on Dm- 
idie ritft .' the hnUi) of Kitd, and such 
like stuff, which has really no intelli- 
gible meaning, and only senres tn 
nauseate the subject of Celtic antirjul- 
ties and philology, — but is so flip- 
pantly pot forth by persons who know 
but little of what they are speakjng. 
and merely follow up the mysti- 
fication which has so long imposed 
upon the world and rendered tlic in- 
quiry contemptible, — should no longer 
be tolerated. No iooncr, however, is 
an attempt made to give from actual 
rtaminalioH a rational and prnbabU de- 
finition of ancient languages, manners, 
and customs, from the remains of a 
people who are admitted by all to have 
existed, than a general cry is raised 
like that of " great it Diana of llir 
Ephftiam." glorious is the humbug 
which has kept the world in the dark, 
mighty the dreams and conceptions of 
fanciful men, who have vHhout pre- 
mitei formed the most ridiculous sys- 
tems, imagined the existence of na- 
tions, and, a9SQming/ii/«eAoo<f for/nc(. 
deceived themselves and others fur 
ages, by gravely postulating us theo- 
rema systems repugnant tu common 

One of these is the astiimptinn of 
the identify or affinity of the Welsh 
and Irish langnagrs. and your loirvs- 
pondcnt S. T. P. p. O08, has been »o 
misled. I suppose he iimlcrslstids 
Welsh i but heceilainly ■ 
ignorant of the Irish. i\ 
ventures l/i pronounce judgment like 
a learned Thcban, and says . — 

" A'aJwilhstanding his ^th« author 
of Etruria Celtics) »blli»i»». most 
Ce//tc wAobirt will not hi 
that br has nof proved I 
deed, it ran '- 
langaage was 

ly (0 Um) Cliii9ii«ii c:a. 

This is a curiously constructed 
sentence of negativet, not one of which 
can S. T. P. prove. The learned 
Welsh are not Ce//ic scholart, and 
S, T. P. probably does not know one. 
Notwithstanding the tenacity with 
which most Welsh writers adhere to 
the idea, it has been repudiated by the 
learned and eminent Welsh authors 
and philologists, Edward Llwyd and 
the Rev. Peter Roberts. The former 
confesses that be failed to find more 
than a few hundred words common to 
both languages, which may be ac- 
counted for by neighbourhood and 
consequent intercourse. Roberts, who 
compared the two languages, is still 
more eiplicit, and says : — 

" The Irish and Welsh languages 
are of no more use to the knowledge 
of each other, than the mere know- 
ledge of the Latin would be to under* 
stand the Greek. 

" The grammatical structure ii r«> 
dicnily dilfcrent. Having formed his 
opinion from comparison of the two 
languages, he fell ' trm hnitntion 
utalitig IktfacI wKifk {iVrltlo antique 
rif had mitltkm.'" 

Bishop Percy, who, although not a 
Welshman, was an eminent philolo- 
gist, says, " I cannot think they (the 
Irish and Welsh) are derived from one 
Celtic stock." 

Professor D. Forbes, eminent as 
Gaelic scholar, in your pngcs. Ml 
Urban, clearly demonstrated that theri 
was no affinity, and he is borne out I 
every sound Gaelic scholar. 

I am, therefore, justified in the op 
tiion 1 have myself formed from aclu 
rnrnparitun . and have no hesitation i

Mb. Urbam. London, June 6. 
CUUIOUS to learn the opinions 
of contributors to the Gentleman's 
Magazine, during it: long and honour- 
able career, concerning Junius, I this 
dav turned to the index volumes. In 
»ol. 87. pt. ii. p. 482, occurs the 
following article, which, being concise 
ood in point, may be given entire. 

" Fmlcmanps, havios accuUntaUf 

opened our XXXth vol. at page S07, 
(being b portico tor Nov. 1 760,) wis 
pccaliiirly atlrsctcd by ' Extracts from 
a Letter to an Hon. Brigadier-General.' 
Conceiving that the style of these extracts 
exactly corresponded vitli the nerve and 
point of the sarcastic Junius, he is strongly 
of opinion, that, if the author of the letter 
in question sbould be known, it will be 
no JifGi-oll task to set at rett the inquiry 
after the author of the celebrated Letten 
under that signature." 

The very Letter, thus pointedly 
noticed, was reprinted in 1840 ; and 
in vol. XY. of your New Scries, i.e. 
for March 1841, may be seen a 
lengthened critique on it. Thus, in 
1760, extracts arc made from the 
letter. In 1SI7. fifty. seven years 
subsequently, a writer in your columns 
expresses bis conviction that he who 
wrote the Letter wrote the Letters of 
Junius. In 1840, twenty. three years 
after this suggestion, another party, 
having access to the whole Letter, 
comes to a like conclnsion, and re- 
prints the same. 

Your present Correspondent has 
now before him MS. observations 
by a gentleman (recently deceased), 
who had been long connected with the 
public press. He had seen the txtraett 
only ; had formed the same opinion as 
Philurlianus; and, previously to the 
illness which terminated his life, was 
preparing his manuscript for the 

Thus three several parties, entirely 
disconnected, after reading either the 
whole Letter or extracts from it in 
your Magazine, arrive at one and the 
same conclusion respecting it. 

Itia known thatthis Lctteroccasioned 
a bloodless contest between two noble- 
men, and that Horace VValpole tells 
the tale with his usual piquancy. 
The authorship must, consequently, 
have been well canvassed at tlic time ; 
the writer's name in all probability 
was known ; and a discovery of that 
name would perhaps reward the 
efforts of any who possess facilities 
and I for the invcMigatioa. 

That made, then comet lh«

«l Tair* and olhvf Pofmt. By George Tarberville. ReprinM from tht 
tiitioH of 1597. Edinh. 1837, *to. (Printed for private circulation, atul 
tamittd to fifty eojnrf.) 

GEORGE TURBERVILLE, the author of these poems, was a youager 
••B of Nich. Tarberville, of White Church in Dorsetshire ; was educated at 
Wbchester. became Kellow of New College. Oxford, 15G1 ; but, before he took 
■ dcfTM, left it and entered one of the inns of court, where he was admired 
for hi» poetrr. He was secretary to Thos. Randolph, esq. who went ambas- 
ig,]^. r,,.,., QoQpn Elizabeth to the Emperor of Russia. He wrote " Poems 
fc«; i'laces and Manners of the Country aod People of Russia," anno 

IW'>. .'!. .iHO published Epitaphs, Epigrams, Songs, and Sonnets, J570. 
8to. Turberville was also the translator of the Eclogue of Mantuan, 1567 
and 159*. 12mo. ; and he gave aversion of the " ileroical Epistles of the 
learned Poet P. OridiusNaso/'ofwhich it is said there were four editions, 1367, 
1569, 1600, and one without date. A. Wood observes, that he finds George 
Torbeiville to be the author of, 1. Essays Politic and Moral, 1608. 8vo. 2. 
The Book of Falconry and Hawking, 1611, 4to. revived by another band. Of 
this book an earlier edition in 137^ has been traced. See Censura Literaria, 
vol. X. p. 132. Among the Rawlinson MSS. there are two copies of a trans- 
lation of Tasso's Godfrey of Bolloiog, by Sir G. T. which Rawlinson believed 
to br Turberville, but it does not appear on what grounds; nor is it known 
that Tarberville was ever knighted. The period of his death is not known, 
hot it occurred, probably, previously to iGl 1. The Tragical Tales arc mostly 
taken from Boccaccio. 

See, on the works of this poet, Censura Literaria, vol. i. p. 319 ; 2nd ed. vol. 
III. p. 72. Rilson's Bibliog. Poet. p. 368, Warton's Hist, of Eng. Poetry, 
vol. ili. p, •«21, vol. iv. p, 247. Ellis's Specimens, vol. ii. p. 577. Philips's 
Thcatrum Poetarum, p. 117. BIbliothcca Anglo-Poetica, p. 359. 

Onr copy of the Heroycall Epistles of Ovid, &c. 1567, was given to us by 
the late Mr. R. Heber, and is a very scarce volume. It may be remarked that 
the eleventh, twelflli. twentieth, and tw<nty-first Epistle are in blank verte, 
the remainder in rhyme.

Retbospbctive Review.— rurftfrwY/eV Poems. 


Frood Eole prince, controller of the windi, 

With churlish Neptune, loverelga of the seu, 
Did play their parts and show'd their stubborn kinds, 

Whom no request nor prayer might oppease. 
The Trojan duke hid not so great ■ brunt 
When he of yore for LaTinc lands did hunt. 

And yet these wights committed none offence 

To Judo, as Sir Paris did of yore. 
Their only travell was for our defense. 

Which makes me waile their sudden deaths the more. 
But what the gods do purpose to be done. 
By proofs we see, man's wisdom cannot shun. 

Ye wnter-nimphcs, and you that ladies be 

Of more remorse, and of a milder mood

Rbtiew. — Foss's Grandeur of the Ldm. 


TviUi the eye of a scientific naturalist 
at Selborne, with the exception of Mr. 
Pennant and Barrington, he had 
scarcely any companions in his inter- 
esting field of inquiry, and he lived 
remote from the world, in a wild and 
unfrequented district of northern 
Hampshire. We are old enough to 
know those who rememhered White 
in his favourite village taking his re> 
gular morning stroll with his gun in 
his hand, along the hedgerows and 
coppices and by the hcccbcn hangers, 
in pursuit of hit game; and we our- 
aelves have wandered over the scenes 
of his pleasing labours, now completely 
despoiled of many of their former 
charms. White's volume contains the 
knowledge of a naturalist delivered 
in the language of a scholar. It has 
been deservedly much praised and 
read, and of late several new editions 
of it have appeared. There is one by 
Ihe late Mr. Bennet, which is particu- 
larly distinguished for the valuable 
information on the habits, instincts, 
&c. of birds, by Hon. and Rev. Mr. 
Herbert, now Dean of Manchester ; 
and the present, by Mr. Jcnyns, will 
be not less esteemed for the original 
matter which it contains. Mr. Jenyns 
ba« not made his what may be called 
a variorum edition like the former, but 
has given White's text, with his occa- 
sional notes upon it, adding or com- 
menting as was necessary, utid as ad- 
ditional information has been obtained. 
We gave to our friend Mr. Jesse, a few 
years since, a list of the birds which 
bad been killed in ourncighbourhood on 
the eastern coast of England (Suffolk). 
which he inserted in the third volume 
of his Gleanings ; to which wc have 
now to add the honey buzzard, and a 
most beautiful bird, the lcel.\nd falcon, 
the colour of the plumage white, with 
brown spots. — peihnps the only bird 
of the kind ever shot in England. It 
probably bad been a trained bird, for, 
only having been winged, it was kept 
•live some time ; ami uhat was curious 
in his habits was its willingness to be 
fed by the hand, while it never at- 
tempted to feed itself. This bird is now 
placed in a colleclion near Becclrs.

Tilt Grandeur of thf Law : or. the Legal 

Peers of Enyland, i[c. By Edward 

Foss, E»g. 

WE think that Mr. Foss has exe- 
cuted his work with much judgment 
and good taste. His biographical 
sketches vary in fullness and length 
according to the importance of the 
character delineated, and the materials 
that were at command. Mr. Foss has 
shown that impartiality that becomes 
the historian, and has never suffered 
either the bias of politics, or the par- 
tiality of private feeling, to lead him 
from the truth. Few persons, we be- 
lieve, who have not read this work 
have any conception of the debt which 
our peerage owes to the profession of 
the law, and how illustrious are the 
names recorded of those persons who, 
having risen to fame and fortune by 
the arduous toil of legal studies, have 
united themselves with the oldest no. 
bility of the land. Of the favourable 
reception of the work we have no 
doubt whatever; and we think that 
in his next edition Mr. Foss might 
without any hazard venture on the 
extension of his biographical notices, 
and with advantage give referenc* 
to the books, historical or critical, 
wherein the lives are noticed, or 
the works reviewed, in the same 
manner that he has quoted from 
Uryden in his character of Bucking- 
ham. We pencilled the following

Sketchei of Human Life. By C. 
Dering, M.A. 
A SPRIGHTLY, sensible, 
amusing little volume. Sound observat 
tioo, entertaining anecdote, with a 
sprinkling of humour and joke, are no 
bad materials for a book in these days 
of ponderous and massive dullness. 
We beg to refer all those of our 
married friends, who consider it im- 
possible that any ditTcrence of opinion 
could possibly take place between 
them and their belter-halvei, to the 
story of the blackbird and thrush at 
p. 62 ; and, as an inculcation of the 
virtue of patience, we refer to p. 71, 
which, not being too long, wc shall gi 

" One ilsy nn old and somewhat hi 
inorous friend of mine, travelling in a 
gig, came to a stand-stiU (seemingly a 
hopeless halt) in a narrow lane (of coarse 
he was in a hurry) owing to the wilfulness 
of n carter, who advanced the more re- 
solutely, until their e^everal horses were 
almost come into contact, the more he 
angrily desired him not to advance. My 
friend, to use a favourite term of the pre- 
sent (lay, ' was not to be done,' so he 
took a newspaper and read very patiently 
as he imagined ; but the carter was, to 
use another peculiar phrase, ' vride awake,' 
and knew, as well as ray friend in his 
heart knew, that hit opponent was in* 
wardly boiling with hopeless anger; sOj^ 
after he had read, or seemed to read, 
half an hour, the carter said, ' Sir, wi 
you haft done irit/i dial paper, icill yi 
ol/liffe me liy lellitig me read it ." It is a 
long lane that has no turning, and thia 
cool impudence showed so much fun in 
the fellow that it turned away my friend's 
wralh, and he said ' Well, my hearty, ^ 
have got the best of It ; you had more 
tirncc than I had, to now let us both 
and see how we can manage to pass 
other.' Where there's a will there's a 
so matters were arranged, and tho travel- 
lera parted good friends." 

Now for another prt>of of the virtue 
of patience.

Urtrt and I'ne for ever ,- at all eveots, for

of patience on that ereniDg I aanr a re- 
markable proof, and an initance to which 
DO country but Irelaud, probably, could 
ninater a parallel. A poor fisherman, 
living on the edge of the lake, was 
alarmed under an impression that this 
autumn storm would unroof bis cabin, 
and he knew it waa unlikely he should ob . 
tain another thatched roof before the im- 
pending winter. I have said the Irish- 
man so situated was poor.- it is an evil to 
be/ioor, but I say he was not poor in in- 
vention, and so he proved ; for, having 
divested himself of nearly all his clothing 
to avoid injury to it from the rain, he 
awaited very patiently {litiing attride on 
ihe no/ <{f hit cabin, in order to keep 
taftty the thatched roof tkereuf) the con- 
clusion of the storm. A truly Irish 
tfheme, but he succeeded in Irs object. 
If that was not /la/ienre, perhaps another 
tour io Ireland may teach me what is.'' 

Nature, a Parable ; a Poem in eeirn 
bookt. B<i Rev. J. U. Morns, M.A. 
THIS has been to us a volume oC 
much inttrest, but rather from the ge- 
neral spirit, feeling, and doctrine, than 
for its poetical merits, though we do 
not think meanly of them, or for the 
peculiar litness of the subject fur poeti- 
cal illustration and ornament, The 
author is master both of poetical lan- 
guage and of ihythmical harmony. 
His expression and his versiGcation re- 
semble those of Wordsworth, but 
without direct imitatioD, and his 
metre is elegant and bannonious 
throughout : while the poem abounds 
with beautiful topics, allegorical pic- 
tures, and poetical images and re- 
semblances taken from the writings of 
the Kathert of the Church- The author 

" I might not dlsadvaotagcouslj em- 
|iloy m» leisure hour* in rinrrcline; "nd 

waa even talked of, except by such at 
were either ignorant of their writings, or, 
vrith some knowledge of these, made no 
effort to follow their stern holiness and pa- 
tient gentleness. The graciousoess of our 
Lord's promises reaches even to the eforta 
to do hit Father's will." 

We must add another extract from the 
preface, which we do, not only because 
what the author says is in accord- 
ance with what we think, but for the 
far better reason, tJiat this preface 
gives the key-note to hit poem, and 
unfolds the spirit and purpose in which 
it is written. 

" I hope that whatevf ■'■ f- ■" "f -tv!c 
or judgment or doctrii. 
this work, I have tbroug '1 

a conviction that tterit livinj/ is I lie way 
to understand the tubjectt of which it 
makes a feeble attempt to treat. If in 
e:(pressing that conviction, I have any 
where seemed deficient in geoltencss, 1 
have little doubt myself that it ii to b« 
attributed to myown want oi ttemnem my- 
self. Of the seeming chilitithnexu of some 
interpretations of Scripturti, or other 
tilings contained in this book, (if they 
me taken from the Fathers,) «r have no 
right to form an opinion, until we lire Ihe 
tiriel lirei of Ihe Fathei'i. And as there 
arr people in England who, one tru.its, 
are moviag in that direction, 1 humbly 
hope that this book may not be unaccepta- 
ble to such persona. It is adilrcsaed to 
them, and not to other people ; and the 
poanessiion of leimre for studying the 
Father!', or the liability to do so as a 
duty, seems in some mrjisure a call upon 
one to venture, in spite of one's own great 
deficiencies, the attempt so to direct one's 
atudies as to supply the wsnta of people 
of that descriptioo," Ike.

of that hai-mony of belief on c<i>cntial 
point! with some of the writeri. which ii 
to oecesury to render that kind of reading 
nltimately pleasant or profitable. Church- 
men and Dissenters have been mingled to- 
gether, and most opposite views have been 
placed perhaps side by side, as if verse 
might be a veil for inconsistency, and as if 
poetry itself were intended only to excite 
the fancy, and indulge the imogiuation 
without any care to convey primitive and 
consistent truth. It has been one chief 
aim of this book to avoid that soil of 
error ; and, as a first step towards securing 
uniformity of creed, none but the writings 
of Churchmen have been consalted." 

This work is arranged under several 
heads, as Repentance, Holy Dying, 
Future State, Prayer, &c. In a new 
edition the number of old poets from 
which additional selections might be 
made may be increased, and we shall 
feel happy to afford the editor such as- 
sistance. Among the modern we 
should point Nature and Art, p. 32, 
signed D. Morweiina: statio.hodieMor- 
wenston, by R. S. Hawker, p. 104. The 
Death of .Moses, p. 854. The follow- 
ing little production of Bishop Ken 
is written with taste and feeling.

THE concluding portion of the 
work which we noticed in our M«y

before, the contents : — 

Bfrlc/oril, CO. Glovcrstrr. — A Noi 
man building, with a tower between 
the nave and the chance], and indica' 
fions of there having been trausepta 
The upper stories of the tower are of 
the Perpendicular style, and the whole 
was formerly surmounted by a spire, 
which was taken down in 1622. 

The western arch of the tower (ii 
the interior) is JVormnn, with iig-za| 
mouldings ; and on its northern co 
lumn are two naasks, between which 
is a Sagittarius, the presumed badge of 
king Stephen, and the occurrence of 
which has induced late writers (we 
should like to ascertain with what 
reason,) to assign the buildings ia 
which it is found lo his reign. 

The south door, sheltered by 
porch, is handsomely carved wi 
cable and zig-zag mouldings, an< 
forms the subject of another of Mr. 
Helton's plates. Above the door

S. Green, M.J. 8i'o. pp. xii. 333. 

THIS work is stated to have been 
undertaken at the suggestion and re- 
quest of the late Hugh James Rose, 
the editor of Middlcton on the Greek 
Article, and this circumstance, which 
carries with it his testimony to Mr. 
Green's ability for the task, is no little 
recommendation of the volume itself. 

It is only of late years that the pe> 
culiarities of the Greek language have 
excited general attention, in connec- 
tion with the New Testament. How- 
ever, they arc important enough to 
deserve it, and to mention only one, 
namely, the article, is suOicient. And 
this is a reason for close and serious 
study of the Greek text. a» other lan-

We had almost overlooked a remark 
at p. 100, on the practice of using the 
infinitive in the sense of the impera-

"If, as appears to be the case, the 
infinitive is thus used by correct 
writers only where a tone of impon 
ance, anllicrity, or solemnity is aS'

At p. 121, he observes,' "On the

ffarymt; or, Iht Advenluret qf a

volt — We earnestly hope few niea of 
fashion resemble tlie hero of this tale, and 
w© tru»! sod believe very few do, cer- 
tainly at letut in our own couolnr. Ad- 
miring Mrs. Trollope's talvutu which are 
displayed in the volumes before its as 
rourh as in her other productionn, we slill 
think she has been very unfoitunnte in 
her crinception of the plot of this novel. 
Har^ravp, indeed, is a cbnraeteraltogi'lhcr 
improbable; it is iiuposiible to conceit c 
that any person in the station and with 
the education of this individual could have 
committed the otTcnccs and crimes of 
which he is represented to have been 
guilty. We are sorry to see in tbe lite- 
rature of our own country any approach 
to that school of fiction in which the 
French have unhappily made themselves 
so prominent ; one of tbe distinguishing 
marks of which is, the imagining circum- 
stances as incidents in tbe stories they 
produce, which ought only to find a place 
in the Newgate Calendar, or some other 
unhappy and revolting record of crime.

py. MX. 11.-. — A oinory of the Russian 
CUnrcli, by a native writer, cannot but be 
valuable, considering that most accounts 
which we possess of it are imperfect and 
unauthentic, though, in saying this, of 
course we except the works of Messrs. 
King and Pinkerton. T^is history is well 
written, and has informed us on various 
points. The translator has appended a 
great number of notes, which wonid how- 
ever have been more seniccable at the 
foot of the page referred to, than in the 
form of an appendix. He has caught 
something of the spirit of the Tractarian 
movement, and his attempt to make the 
Anglican and Russian churchea harmo- 
nine ia carried much too far. It is of 
little use to show to what extent divines 
of the Church of England have entertained 
sentiments which are really at Tariance 
with her formularies.

who had succeeded in reaching Yarkand, 
in the Chinese Empire, which, it appears, 
no modern European traveller had ever 
visited. This tninslation had appeared in 
an Indian perioilicnl ; but as such pub- 
liculions are with difficulty procurable, 
and in fact almost unknown in Europei 
the Council had resolveil. tliat in case of

were then read, of the proceedings of the 
Oriental Translation Committee. Since 
the last annual meeting, they had pub- 
lished the " Sama Yeds," translotcd by 
Dr. .Stevenson ; the " Popnlar Poetry of 
Persia," by M. de Chodzko : the first 
volume of '* Ibn Khallikhn's Biographical 
Dictionary," by the Baron Mocljuckin de

also made of some valuable Biueraphies

of the Fonts have a smaller huin at-

The President of Trinity suggested that 
these smaller basins were probably to

Bnointing the infants after they were 

The Secretary read a short account of 
Shottcsbrookc Church, Berkshire, near 
Twyford, illustrated by the drawings pre- 
sented by Mr. Butterfield. This Church 
is a very perfect specimen, on a small 
ccale, of the decorated style ; cruciform, 
with the tower and spire rising from the 
intersection, It is fully described in our 
Magazine for Feb. \6W, It affords an 
excellent model for study, and we arc 
glad to hear that the Society are about to 
publish engravings of it. 

Mr. Addington, of Lincoln College, 
presented several rubbings of Brasses, 
■od read an accotint of them. 


Mr. Cottingham has submitted his 
plans to the committee for the restoration 
of the Norman gateway tower at Bury St. 
Edmund's, together with a full and highly 
satisfactory explanation of them, .\mong 
the drawings exhibited, fourteen in num- 
ber, executed on a large scale, were 
coloured views of the east and west fronts 
of the tower, shewing the present alarming 
itate of the disruptured masonry ; eleva- 
tions of the four sides a.* they will appear 
■when the proposed restoration is com- 
pleted J and sections and pinns shewing 
the way in which the four bclt« of iron 
tics will be disposed, each of which Mr. 
Cottingham likened to fourgiantigrosping 
the four comers of the tower with both

enough to signify their intention of snb*

parish in the covinty of Essex, extending 
seven miles in UuiiCh : and of its popula- 
tion i^somr JOtXJ in nuuiber)n considerable 
portion live at an inconvenient distance 
from the parish church. That part of tbe 
parish known as the HighwDod Quarter 
was fixed upon as the spot where a house

ping Hill, about a mile from tbe town. 
The style of the building is early-Engliah, 
and it is in tbe form of a Calvary Cross. 
The walls and buttresses are panelled ex- 
ternally with black flints, and bordered 
with white brick. A large window, of 
stained glass, over the altar, has been exe-

; but, in the beginning of the 

year 1841, it was pulled down to make 
room for the contemplated improvementa 
consequent upon the reboildiog of tho 
new Royal Exchange. The cost of the 
re- erection baa been defrayed out of the 
funds granted to the church by the 
charter of King Edward VI. The new 
building is of an originul Gothic design, 
and capable of accommodating about 300 
persona. The altar-piece — a design bj 
Fogo, representing Joseph of Arimathea 
receiving the body of Christ — has been 
presented to the church by Mr. Moxbay, 
of the Universal Hall of Commerce; and 
it is understood that several French mer- 
chants resident in the metropolis have 
liberally contributed towarda the erection 
of the church. 

March 14. St. John's Church, at 
Keiijhtfy, Yorkshire, errctcd upon a site 
givi-ii by the Eurl ol Burlington, It baa 
been erected uixier thu superintendence 
of Mr- Itnu'storne, at an expense of about 
20(K)/., uiid is i-apxble of accommodating 
im persons, oi which 3J4 arc free. 

Jpril 6. The church at Merrow in 
Surrey, restored, enlarged, and beautified, 
was opened with Divine service. The 
Vcn. Archdeacon Wilberforce with a num- 
ber of the resident clergy attended. The 
building consists of two lofty aislea, the 
rafters of which are exposed in the olden 
style, and are of coloured oak. The 
soutliern aisle is unavoidably abridged in 
length by the Onalow family vault, which 
has not been disturbed, and the ancient 
Norman cotnmna and archea are also pre- 
served. A pointed arch diviJes the chan- 
cel and nave. There ia a small gallery at 
the west end with a beautifully designed 
window, and an east window of stained 
gloss. The pewing is wainscot, too low 
for the indulgence of indolence, or to 
spoil the architectural effect of the build- 
ing. The carved stone pulpit, with the 
stone work in the chancel, deserve* no- 
tice. The restoration, oi' nearly rebuild- 
ing of this church, reflccta great credit on 
the architect, Mr. llussey.

The Rev. Richard Garaett, of 
British Museum, communicated an essaj 
on the eastern terminus of the Wa 
of Antonious. It turned priocipally 
points of etymology, the author sbowia 
that the name of Kinneil was io ht_ 
the same with the Celtic Cean-fhail, an4l 
signifying the wall's end. No remains i 
the wall have been uscertained eastwar( 
of that place, which confirms this etymo- 
logical testimony.

The Secretory laid before the Society 
the report of its operations during the 
past year, from which it appeared that it 
was in a prosperous condition. The fol- 
lowing presents were received : a small 
um, found in digging for a road in Cot- 
tenbam fen, by A. W. Iratt, esq. Sidney 
college ; a small um. fouod within a 
larger one, filled with fragments of bone 
in the Twin-Barrow, Bincombe Down.

book of water-colour drawings, from 
Roman remsins in the collection of Mr.

of copies of an engraving of Romaa 
Antiquities, found at Unry Hill, near

architecture, contained in a note book of 
William of Worcester, preserved in the 
Library of Corpus Christi ; illustrated by 
reference to the door uf St. Stephen's 
and the great western entrance of St. 
Mary RtdclifTe, at Bristol. 

Sir H. Dryden read a paper on the 
discovery of a large number of skeletons 
near Marston St. Lawrence, iu Northamp- 
tonshire, in the years 1 84 1 -i. The paper 
was Illustrated by elaborate drawings of 
the urns, arms, and personal decorations

The Secretary read a paper by Mr*j 
Duncan, containing an arcoant of varion 
inventions for flying, which have been at 
tempted from the earliest period down f 
Mr. Henson's patent, which wai re- 
gistered September the 2!tth, 1 84il. Dr. 
Buckland inferred the certainty of the 
failure of Mr. Henson's invention from 
the erroneous principles on whicb it ii 
founded. He said, that there was no 
provision for counteracting the violent 
currents of air which would be met with, 
and the only point which seemed to have 
been attended to by the inventor was the 
buoyancy of the machine when once 
atarted, but no adequate means had been 
provided to coanteract much greater dif- 

Walter C. Trevelyan, c.*q. M.A. Univ.

June 15. The Annual Meeting w&a 
held, Professor H. H. Wilson, President, 
in the Chair. 

The Report of Council on the state and 
prospects of the Society, was read. 

The loss of members by death is four,

Esq. F.S.A., J. Gage Rokewode, Esq. 
Dir. S.A., and B. Smith, Esq., and one

Mr. Fox has been long known as the 
enlightened promoter of literary and 
scientific pursuits in the towns ofGod- 
manchester and Huntiagdon ; Mr. Gage 
Uokcwodc, for the amenity, liberality, 
and leal which he displayed as Director 
of the Society of Antiquiirics, ond for the 
patient research and extensive learning 
displayed in his antiquarian and topo- 
ginphical researches. 

I'lie Society has also lost three of its 
foreign associates, all eminently dis- 
tinguished for their labours in numismatic 
science, or in kindred branches of inquiry; 
they are Mons. Mionnet, Dr. Geseuios, 
and Chevalier P. O. Brimdsled. 

The name of Mionnet has been na- 
sociated with the numiimata of classical 
antiquity for nearly half a eentriry. He 
was born in 1770. His taste for on- 
misinalic investigationa developed itself 
even in bnyhnnd, and in early youth he 
became known to the chief collectots and 
nmnteurK of Paris ns a ouniisuiatisc of 
promise, full of induttry, zeal, and ac- 
qnirementt. The repatalioo he looo 

^^m esUbUahed gained him the notice of the 
^^B GoTernment of France, and he received 
^^> tn appointment in the Cabinet des M^-- 
' doillet. Ho commenced his public career 

on the Jth of May, 1795, and, by a 
lingular coincidence of dates, terminated 
his duties and his existence on the anni- 
Tersary of that day, in 1K42. At the 
time of his death, M. Mionnet held the 
office of " Conscrreteur adjoint du 
Cabinet des M^doilles et Antiques de 
la Bibtiotb^que du Roi." In bis TO- 
luminoua work, the " Description des 
MeJailles Antiques," he has embodied 
the observations and information of a lung 
and eminent numismatic life, and has 
collected from a variety of sources a vnjt 
mass of most important details. 

Dr. Gesrnius Is chiefly known on 
account of his critira) and philological 
jesearcbei, particularly those directed to 
the illustration of the Hebrew language. 
Yet he also directed his uncommon learn- 
ing and unwearied perseverance to a 
collateral branch of inquiry, in which 
numismatic science was an indispensable 
auxiliary, the determination of the Phoe- 
nician characters of laniruage. Accordingly 
in his celebrated work publisht^d at Leipdc , 
In IR.TT, " Scripturn: Linguieque Phue- 
niciiE Monumcnin," bis third book treats 
De Numis Phoeniciis, and he has given 
representations of a number of Phoenician 
coins and interpretations of their legends 
in Phoenician characters. Dr. Gesenius 
died at Halle in October last. In the Uni- 
Teraity of which city he had held the 
Profeasorahip of Hebrew for thirty-two 

Of the Chevalier BrAndsted an ample 
memoir has been already placed before our 
readers in our Magazine for Aug. 18412,

A more considerable decrease in the 
Dumbers of the Society has arisen from 
the many retirements during the year, 
amouuling to upwards of thirty. It 
Tvould appear that these were of a class 
from whom the Society had never received 
»ny support whatever, not even pecuniary 
kid. They were, in fact, but nominnlly 
members, and, as their names added 
nothing to the resources of the Society, 
to no detriment is suffered from their 
disappearance from its list. Most of them 
leem to have been elected in the infancy 
of the Society, or had been included among 
original Members from a misapprehension 
of tlifir intentions. The bad effectB of 
baving the list swelled by non-paying and 
non-effective Members, so fatal to the 
prosperity and existence of scientific 
(ooieties, was fortunately seen by the 
Council of the Numismatic Society before 
the evil had become irremediable, and 
energetic measures were adopted wiiicb 

Antiquarian Researches. 


have led to the best results ; >ome few of 
the defaulters paid, and the rest, on being 
pressed for arrears, retired from the 

Severtd new Members and Anodatet 
have been elected. 

The receipts nf the year are 295/. 12». 3d, 
the disbursements 2-10/. 4«. t>d. leavint 
a balance in the bands of the Treasurer of 
nol. It. 6(/. ; but for the following year 
neither the one nor the other could be 
expected to be so considerable, yet the 
Treasurer's statement affords reasonable 
grounds for anticipating a much more 
healthy and prosperous condition of the 
funds than has existed since the institu- 
tion of the Society. 

The enumeration of the benefiuton of 
the Society is a subject of the most satis- 
factory contemplation, not merely from 
their valuable donations to the cabinetl 
and library of the Society, but also from 
their widely extended range, comprehend- 
ing not only various distingnished In- 
dividuals in this country, but, in a still 
greater proportion, the most eminent 
patrons and cultivators of numismatic 
science abroad. From Paris, Brnssels, 
Madrid, Rome, Florence, Vienna, Athena, 
and Petershurgh, and many other place* 
nn the continent, the Society has received 
the most flattering proofs that its exertions, 
however bumble and restricted, (unaided 
by the countenance and support of the 
Government, which in England is afforded 
to some other societies,) have been known 
and appreciated in the most favourable 
maoner throughout the whole of Europe. 

The result of the ballot being declared 
by the scrutineers, the Rev. G. C. 
Reuouard and Mr. Pfister, the followiuc 
were declared elected as Officers and 
Council for the year 1843-4: as Presi-

sities of the Irish peasantry lo violence, 
and tbcir extreme iividily for jiossea- 
sion of arms, their attacks upon houses, 
and the late assassinations nhich bad lulcen 
place. — Mr. Shannon Crawford said that 
£ngUnd was herself the cause of the re- 
vival of the measure, by breaking all her 
promises of redress for Irish grievances. 
xle moved that it should be read a second 
time that day six months. Lord Clementt 
seconded the uniendment. — .Mr. Smith 
(ibe Attorney- General lor Ireland) said

frage to all sane male adults not convicted 
of a crime ; next, fixity of tenure — a 

Ehrasc meaning tbc transfer ol the whole

lord to the tenant ; and with these were 
required vote by ballot, and one or two 
Other extreme propositions of the same 
class, Tbe measure provided by this Bill 
ksd been in existence with little inter- 
mission for almost a century, and its 
necessity was cogent. Tbe debate was 
continued during three nights, and on the 
morning of June 1st tbe Bill was read a

June 2. Sir R. Peet moved tbe second

dress to her Mujesty relative to tbe in- 
tended marriage of her Royal Highness

11 r. Hume proposed to add, by way of 
nnicndment, u sentence inttmating that

the present distress of tbe country. For 
the motion, 37C; for the amendment, 5'^; 
— mujority, 2H. The House having gone 
into committee. Sir 1(. Peel said, tbe 
custom appeared to have been that on the 
inarrisgc of a Princess her parent made 
provision for her during bis own life ; 
and he should therefore propose, not that 
any immediate sum should be voted, but 
Ibnt an the death ol the Duke of Cam- 
bridge B portion of his niinnily should be 
disposable by her ilHJesty for the benefit 
oi his royal daughter (I(irii)g her life ; the 
amount of which should he.S.OO(V. n year.

ment, that the pruvixion should be '.J.OOOf. 
a year, to commence from the marriage. 
After some further conversation, tbe vote 
was postponed. — Before going into Com- 
mittee of Ways and Means, Lord Hovrick 
moved a Committee of the whole House, 
with a view la repeal the duty imposed 
last year upon the exportation of Coals. 
The ground on which the tux bad been 
put was that of revenue, and on that 
ground it had been a failure, having pro- 
duced only 88,tX)0/. Iri>m which was to be 
deducted the cost of collection, while the 
export tnide had suffered most seriously 

from the measure Mr. Gtodtlone op. 

posed tbe motion on the ground that tbe

revenue produced by the tax, which would 
nrobahlyamonnt to 112,000/ or III.OOO/.

bare riidcared hi« memory to all hit 
neighbours, both rich and poor, by the 
venerable example which he has afforded 
of the character of a Christian gentleman. 
Perhaps the most conspicuoui among his 
many estimable qualities were sincerity, 
the abaerice of all pride, and, in it« most 
inlaiiged sense, charity. He died in the 
full possession of oil bis faculties, the 
full exercise of every kindly sympathy, 
and the full enjoyment uf every gospel 
hope. There is a good engraving pub- 
lished of a portrait of Mr. Gwatkin by 

We add the following extract from Mr.

" Killiowis now thespatof Mr. Robert 
liorell Uwatlcin, where he has built an 
•Iroott entirely new house, with extensive 

Sirden* and plantations, improved the 
nd, and made the whole into a handsome 
modem residence. 

" To this gentleman the parish is also 
mainly indebted for a removal of the 
church. Either cultivation began on the 
banks of the river, or « strong feeling of 
veneration was entertained for the spot 
where St. Kea landed from his granite 
trough ; butsoilliitppened that the church 
atood at one eiiremity ol the parish, and 
tbat by far the least populous. Mr. 
Gwalkin led the way, and contributed 
largely towards constructing a new church 
much nearer to the great mass of the 
inhabitants ; in this be was followed by 
other proprietors, and a s pncioiis church 
Is now in use for di^-ine service between 
Killiowand Nancesvallan. Prayers, with 
a sermon suited tu the occasion, were 
first given, after reading the lilsbop's 
licence, on the 3rd Oct. 1802, being the 

fcasten Sunduy. '■■ ■" "n-gation so large

His course at tbe bar promised equal 
distinction. His progress in the study of

cited tbe wonder of his instructors ; and 
be hud just entered upon his arduous pro- 
fession under the brightest prospects, 
with the noblest views and the most

in tbe course of that Providence, whose 
ways arc unscrutable, he wiis withdrawn 
from us. Wc cannot conclude this biief 
notice without adding a tribute to the 
other qualities of a more endearing and 
ennobling rharacler [lossested by faim, 
and in a yet higher degree. It was the 
tone of deep earnest piety pervading his 
whole life which gave promise lo all who 
came in contact with him of eminent 
public usefuliieg», should God spare him 
to years of maturity; and it was the 
gentle and affectionate spirit of true 
Cfarittian love, ever breathing from act 
and word on all around him. which would 
have given him a wide influence over his 
fellow-countrymen, as it has left a wide 
circle of friends to weep over his prema- 
ture death. (Cambridgt ChrOHicli)

arc DO less true and excellent. In bis 
ger «oik, The Royal Piilaccs, the en. 
ivings are sjilendid, and (lie text replete 
3tb talent, wbelber applied to graphic 
remark or antique anecdote and research. 
His H'^ine and Walnuli (originally pub- 
lished in the Literary Gaittte, and then 
collected in three volume!:,) attracted 
Bucb public notice, and induced him to 
■rt a weekly periodical o( his own, 
hicb was called the Somerset House 
Gazette, but lotted only for one year. 
The pains be bestowed on bis anecdotical 
'Oquiries were cxtraurdiniiry ; and every 
Ittle incident and (not which lie elated, 
r capable of conlirmntinn, were a.s caie- 
illl^ inveiiiigated as if be had been com- 
"Ming national history. This gave greol 
due to his pictures of elder times, his 
iograpbical sketches, and touches of 
banners. Latterly lie communicated 
ome agreeable papers to Frazer't Maga- 
n°ne, in which it is believed the last of 
his literary essays have ap|>earcd. 

During bis long career Mr. P. was 
intimately B.<isociated with all the princi- 
pal artists of the time, and also with very 
many ot its literary ornaments. Hiscon- 
versation wiis original, in<.truelive, social, 
and entertaining, and caused bin company 
tu be much courted by all who could 
appreciate these agreeable ()ualilie^. 
idle was connected with the late JMr, 
Ackermann, and the suggester and main- 
cpring of many of that worthy giublisher's 
most successlul undertokings, from the 
' sue of a print to the institution y( the 
jfaroous subscription for the sutTcrcrs in 
"icrmmy. His mind, indeed, was ever 
full of curious projects ; but perhaps bis 
bersevcraijce was not equal to bis invcn- 
joii, and fortinie did not reward his 
((Torls so liberally as to bless bis closing 
^4nTs with the independence his genius so 
richly deseivcd. 

He was, we believe, the son of a re- 
*peetablc leather-seller in Holborn, and 
lisplayed so early and strong a predilec- 
tion for the attk as to induce bis father to 
Jplace him on triiil with a clever drnugbtt-

son, esq. R.A. tate Keeper of the Boyal 

The father of Mr. Thompson \nt a 
purser in the navy, and resident in St. 
Oeorge's-square, Portsea, where the 
lute Keeper was born. His native place 
was his Invouriiu letirenu'iil from the 
activity of town life, and there, in IfBiS, 
he look np his permanent residence j but 
from his secluded habits very tittle was 
known of him, except that his charily 
was extensive considering his means. 

Prolonged cor])ortal siifTering compelled 
bim almost entirely to ubandon the ex- 
ereise of his art. The little be has done 
has been with a view of presentation to 
friends in return tor offices rif kindness 
and attention. He was especially fond of 
the recreation of boating, and his boat 
was among those objects which formed 
the subject of bis last sketches, which 
were painted in oil upon rough paper, 
and so managed as to present a very 
agreeable efTerl, The boat was sketch- 
ed for the ofTice-keepcr at the (tim- 
wharf, Poilsinouth, to whom it was pre- 
sented by Mr. Thompson. Such little 
exercises formed the amusement and 
solace of his declining years ; being from 
infirmity unequal to greater efforts, they 
served yet to itidenilfy him with iha 
protcHkion in which he had risen to dis- 

His style was blsloricai and poetical — 
his " Perdila" will be long remembered ' 
OS one of the gems of its class. Since 
his residence at Portsea he has painted 
nothing of impoi lance. i 

The late Mr, .'Spencer. Storekeeper of .1 
the Ordnance Depaitmeni, was his parti- 
cular friend for u period nf forty years.

The following traditionHl history of the 
extinction of tlie dcsccnd«nl» of tlie poet 
Spenser is written by one of his descend- 
ants in the female line. Should any of 
our friends be able to supply that test of 
fact* and datci which such tradional ac- 
counts gciienilly require, we shall feel 
obliged by their coinniunicatioMs. " Do- 
rothy Spencer was married into the family 
of Power, at that lime of Ring in the 
CO. Cork. Settlement was made on the 
children of this marriage, and ynt charged 
on certain of the property of Spencer ; lub- 
lequently, proceedings were taken to raise 
the charge by a Protestant relation, (the 
parties being Catholics, and the penal laws 
m force,) and the last estate of Spencer 
was on that occasion sold. Voung Spen- 
cer finding himself reduced to extremity 
committed suicide at the old castle of 
Revney, on the estate in question, in the 
neighbourhood of Tallagh, and thus ended 
the direct male line, as well as the pro- 
jierty of the poet. F>om a comparison of 
circumstances and ages this last event 
might have occurred about 180 years ago. 
The detail was given by one of the parties 
immediately concerned. The worthy 
friend who took proceedings in trust put 
the money in his own pocket." 

G. C. remarks, in reference to the re- 
marks on the origin of the Irish language 
in our last number, that Mr. Ducking, 
ham, the traveller and lecturer, on one 
occasion said he was acquainted with a 
Moorish merchant who was visiting In 
Kiigland and Ireland, and understood the 
IrisTi language without having any know- 
ledge of English. He stated that in the 
course of his profession he had occasion 
to dwell for a considcrnble time in the 
mountains in the neighbourhood of Mo. 
rocco, and learnt llic lungunge of the Crihes 
there, and, when visiting In Dublin, was 
exceedingly Burpiiscd at hearing t^vo 

{•copic at the post office speaking the 
angiuige he haa been uix'uslDmed to in 
tb« mountains. He asked them where 
thry learned it, and their reply was it was 

the ';. ■' ^ ':-'■■ 

and ' 




of whose city is not a great fli't/ane r from 
them. Another instance is this. A 
Alussulman hawker of rhubarb uboiiC 
the streets, several years since, spoke and 1 
understood Irish, and said it was ib« j 
languog« he had learned in his own coun- 
try. Nobody believed him, thinking him : 
an impostor, und told him he waa aqj 
Irishman, who was obliged to diagui*4| 
himself on account of some crime. An ' 
Irish lady, also, residing at Morocco soma < 
time, was astonished to bear the people | 
who brought tilings to market from tba 
country speak the language of her coud> 1 
try. The only way she could account for 
it was by supposing some Irish had been 
there and taught them. 

FuiLo-PouaON remarks, " It has been 
a matter of regret to many that the valuable 
notes of Professor Porson on the Greek 
lexicographers and Latin authors have not 
yet been published. As lung ago aa the 
year 1810 we have been told of their ex*] 
cellence, the specimens that have Bpj>eare4] 
have by no means tended to diminish the j 
belief in their usefulness, and yet ibeyj 
still lie idle in Ttinlty college library, j 
Surely among the many splendid scholar* | 
that that noble society hos produced, one! 
might be found to take upon biiuiclf thai 
labour of editing these Inst remains of i 
the first scholar the world has yet seen. [

Tite Life of Sir David Ifilkie. By Allan Cunningham. 3 voU. Bvo. 

THE n»e and puqxMe of biograpliy, wlilcb may be called " Lesser His- 
," is two-fold. In the first place, it is intended to narrate the events 
facts which form the life of the subject of it; giving, as far u 
words can give, such a portraiture and likeness of the original, as stamps ita 
(iteotity, and distingiiithcfi it from the resemblances of ail other persons 
But it has n further and higher object in view than what is confined to 
the delineation of the features of the individual, and to the history of his 
life and mind ; which is, to carr)^ out the instruction gained to purposes of 
general utility, to excite emulation of all that is praiseworthy, to awaken 
congenial virtues in the breasts of others, to confirm the natural abhor- 
rence which all good and ingenuous minds feel towards what is base and 
low and aclfiKh in the private intercourse and social character of men ; to 
call forth industry and the exertion of talent, to place high aims and noble 
purposes before the mental eye, to disengage us from the present, and 
keep our views steadily fixed on the achievement of future objects, 
however distant or even uncertain they may appear; to show how all 
dilTirultics vanish before the firm and determined mind ; and, lastly, 
to rvprrss its sympathy with genius, when by a laborions and 
!> lion of its powers it has triumphed over all op]H)sition from 

v\ i without, and has produced the great result of its labour in a 

work that commands the admiration of its contemporaries, and reuiaius an 
imperishable monument of w hat may be achieved by the judicious eulti- 
valiun of the natural powers of the mind, earnestly directed to some par- 
ticular province of science and of art. This, then, is the lesson that we are 
todraw from all works in which the history of individual life is laid before 
us ; not only to study what it tells us of the past, but to draw from it all 
that it may suggest for the future ; to consider ourselves as standing side 
by tide with the original figure, and drawing instruction from the failure 
or auccess, the errors or virtues which we observe amid the chequered life 
of the man. and which stanqied it with ita characteristic hue of sunshine 
or of gloom, according as favourable or adverse circumstances have most 
prcTOiIed. Ttiese observations may be applied to the work now imme- 
diately before us, a work written with sucli fulness and minuteness of 
detui, j» w ill imparl instruction to the painter, yet under the direction 
i»f fcurh brotid fttid general principles an may be successfully tninspluntcd, 
Dd :• iisly used in the direction of life and conduct in olhrr pro- 

cumstanees altogether difTcrent. The two leading features 
(•' lift, we think, were to be found in his extreme devotion to his 

Ell ii'nse lovo of it, the entire command which it iM>Me(sed over his 

mind,— and secondly, in the scMic a])p1ication of his jKrwcrs, bin uu- 
wearic<l indo^try, his total dedication of time, thought, body, arid mind to 
the service of that work, for the succcjisful cultivation of which he knew 
that he had relinquished all otlifi niiim and pur{x>sc» of life, and ou which

everything that was dear to him, the hope of indcpciidcnrc, and the en 
joymeiit of houournble fame, ami the friendship of the rnlifrhtciicd ami the 
infornjcd, and the anxious thoughts of his parents and relations, and his 
own peace of mind, and perhaps his very health and existence, were staked. 
As regards W'ilkic's extreme att«chra»;nt to his art. it not only appears in 
every page of the work before us, and in the very spirit that animate:! the 
whole from the beginning of his career to the end ; but we have also 
often heard the same from those who were intimately acquainted with him, 
and one of whom, a person of the highest attainments and taste iu .nil the 
sister-arls, has more than once used the expression in our hearing, 
*' Wilkic lived but to paint." Mr. Cunningham, his biographer, has sup- 
Iportcd the truth of this observation with particular details. He informs 
118 that wherever Wilkic went, he was on the look out for fresh characters 
or change of costume. He treasured the remembrance of singular con- 
trasts of colour, or accidental and happy easts of drapery, as surely as his 
pencil could pourtray them. He ransacked (his favourite spot of sturly) 
II the quaint and antiquated furniture of the brokers' shops, the gothic 
ihairs, the carved settees, the long-shanked German glasses. At an old 
English change-house he would look and look and look again. In the 
jrogress of his daily works, as may be read in his journals, will be seen the 
study and labour required in the purchase of ];isting reputation.* 

" The meanest object," says Mr. Cuii- take a third before the breeze scatters the 


oingbam, " obtained its due share of 
thought. All the auxiliaries of the pic- 
ture contributed to its scnlinieut ; ho 
put in no article of furniture nicrdy to fill 
up blanks ; all were regarded ns matters 
of harmony, or conlirmativc of the story. 
The students loved him even for \\\s great 
attenlion, wAicA in Aim teemrd a matter 
of eontcience. ' Really it is wonderfnl,' 
he said, ' how men will trifle time ; they 
will squander hours, days, nay weeks, on 
the merest trifling, neglecting the study 
of an art, which, even with the moat 
gifted, requires a lifetime to attain.* 
He compared the sladents who florked 
wmually to the Academy to the seed of a 
pe thistle. ' See,' said he, ' to each of 
esc downy parachutes one grain of sound 
teed is attached, anil as the wind lifts 
them in the sir, they are WBflC4l fts it 
blows over the face of the corlh. There 
cannot be less than a thousand seeds in 
the full-grown putla ; the birds of the air 

whole : another third falbt on the water, 
or on a barren place ; and at last, when 
nature examines the rrsnlt, it is found 
that only one seed out of the thoasood 
has fallen in a fruitful plain, and flou- 
rished. So it is with the students of art : 
a half who come can have uo rvjil natural 
call for the fine art* ; they come bccnase 
others come, or because they dislike the 
study shnped out for them by their friends, 
or bccauire tliey think art is a beautiful 
thin^, and nil her stuilics pleasant ; in 
short, mil one lores art with all their 
heart, and witli nil their soul, and with 
all their strength : they linger for a few 
montht. perhaps for a few years, about 
the Academy seaUi, and then silently makn 
way for other swarms, who come and stare, 
or study, or make moutht at Raphael or 
Reynolds, and liuiilly go on Ihnt way, 
and oic all save one in a sfuson or »o 
heard of no more.' " 

• Little do those unacquainted with the practice of art know the iiieenaant saiTiSiwa 

demands of il» protcs«ors, in ni.lef not only to acquire, but rrrn to maintain, the 

rquiiition made. We eive an example from an art not reckoned nmone ihr hiiclirat,

Ctiiiiiiiiglianrs L\fe of Sir David tVilkie. 


It 18 not our iiitciiltoii to ^vc any abri(lj;fd account of WilUie's life, 
which ciili oiil) he ica<l ailv»iitageoiisly wlicii accoiii]>aDicd with the history 
of his Moiks, and of his progress and success in art. He kept, botli 
abroad and at home, a very accurate journal of his daily life, uniting a 
critical account of tlie pictures he saw, his reflections on various branches 
of painting as they occurred at the time, observations on the works of the 
old masters iu collections he visited, as well as on the style of his contcm- 
(wiarics, with mention of the visits of friends, patrons, and conuoisseurs. 
He aUo corresiwndcd with Sir J. Beaumont, Sir R. Peel, his friend Collins, 
besides rocmljers of his own family ; and, from these sources of informa- 
tion joined, a very clear and full picture of his own life is placed before 
the public eye — most interesting both to those who read it within and 
without the circle of his art. From this we shall make a few extracts on 
parts prominently brought forward by him, or on such as have beeu ha- 
bitually subjects of particular curiosity with us ; but the reader must pe- 
rii»e the original very carefully, and repeatedly, to draw from it the mine 
of valnnble information it contains. 

Wilkie left Scotland for I^oudon on the 20th May, 1805, when he was 
between niuetecn and twenty. He took lodgings in Norton Street, New 

td. and in July he writes to his fellow-student MacDonald the following 
t>unt of the merits of some of the leading academicians , —

l'). This is cerlaioly 

hope he may succeed. Since I came to 
town, I hare conversed with some of the 
first artists in the kingdom : I have been 
introduced to Floxman, Nollekens, Fuscli, 
and West. Mr. Flaxman is the best mo- 
deller we have. I was introduced to him 
by a letter that I brought with oie from 
Scotland ; and be introduced mc to Mr. 
Fuscli, who is the professor of painting 
in the Ac'idemy, and a very kind good 
sort of man he is. He questioned mc 
about our artists in Edinburgh — inquired 
if Graham painted any. Ho had heard of 
the fame of Racbum ; he admired the 
works of the celebrated Runciman, and 
asked if I had ever seen his Ussinn's Hall 
at Pennycuick ; he also in(|uircd about 
David .Mian, and, for all bis bad 
drawing, allowed him a very consi- 
derable degree of merit. A friend of 
mine, who is a very great connoisseur, 
took me . to Mr. West's house, where 
we found that celebrated artist engaged 
in painting a picture : but how much was 
I astonished at his wonderful works, 
which for grandeur of dcsiga, clearness of 
colouring, and correct ontlinc, surpass any 
modern pictures I have yet seen ; bia 
figurc^ji have, no doubt, a flatness about 
them, hut, with all his fault.*, we have not 
a painter that can draw like him. I have 
been seciiiB a gallery of pictures by Mor- 
land which pleased mc very much indeed. 
He seems to have copied nature in every 
thing, and in a manner jieculiar to him- 
self. When you look at his pictures yon 
ICC in them the very same figures that wc 


Canningliam's Li/e of Sir David WiUcit. 


M« litre every <lay in the itrecti, which, 
from the vorietj and looseneu in their 
tireas, form an appearance that is truly 
pictoresque. and much superior to our 
peasantry in Scotland. I have also seen 
>ome pictures by Tenieri, which for clear 
tottchiag certainly go to the height of 
human perfection in art : tley make all 
other pictures look misty beside them. 

As for Turner, whom yon Hbts het 
Allan speak of, I do nut nt all undenti 
his method of painting : bis designs oriil 
grand, the effect and colonring natural, 
bat his manner of handling is not to my 
taste ; and, although his pictures ore not 
large, you must see tbam from the other 
end of the room before they coa utiify 
the eye," *c. 


In the September uf tlie same year AVilkie became accidentally ac- 
qnainted witli Mr. Stodart, on whom lie called for tlie porchaseof a piano- 
forte. Tbe pianofoi'to uiaker bappcned to be married to a Wilkic, had 
some taste for painting as well as inusic, and in the way of business was 
acquainted nith the Countess of Mansfield and her son the Earl. Mr. 
Stodart's was the first portrait which \Vilkie drew, and in December he 
was admitted as a student of (ho Academy. He had also painted the Pit- 
Jessie Market for his friend ; and now 

on his thumb, ' We must go and see 
this Scottish wonder, Jackson,' said Sir 
George : and they followed him to Wi|. 
kic's abode, where they found the Village 
Politicians all but finished. Two such 
judges rouUI not but see its worth at once, 
anil, as they had generosity as well as good 
judgment, they spread the fame of the 
picture round the bright circles to which 
they belonged. They were not only 
plcasud with the works of the artist, but 
charmed with the simplicity of the man;

opf^neU llie doors of tliu Lciujtlo o( iamc 
to Wilkie, seem to have tiplifted him little. 
He foresaw that the cost of execution 
would, at the rate which he wrought. 

" The influence of the friendly Stodart 
began to be visible in the fortunes of 
Wilkie, The Earl of Mansfield 00 sooner 
law Pitleuie Fair than he felt its beauty 
as a composition, and had enough of old 
Scotland in him to perceive that it was as 
true to the people as the siin is to sum- 
mer: he sought out the painter in his 
obscure abode, where he found him with 
all his pictures and studies around him. 
■^Tien Wilkie hung up n small picture or 
two in the window at Cliiiring Cross, he 
put the very modest price of six guineas 
each on them ; but he had now discovered 
that it was chea])er to study in the manse 
of Cults than in the middle of London ; 
and that living models, rich colours, and 
re»pectable lodgings — all necessary mat- 
ters in a polite art — devoured his sub- 
stance. He had all this in his mind when 
the Earl inquired what his price would be 
for psinling him a picture from his study 
of the Village Politicians, nic artist an- 
swered fifteen guineas, to which the Earl 
made no answer ; and Wilkie, who seems 
to have felt that his strength lay in that 
direction, proceeded to pnin' •'"■ i-i.-ii.i.

[gentleman delicate in all that affected the 
Itteliogs of men of genius. With what 
[graceful tenderness Ue hints the defects 
I Vhicb he observed in the colouring of The 
[]Blind Fiddler. ' Save me from myself,' 
Iksys Sir George, ' is as rational a petition 
[in pointing as in morals : some peculiar

[of an artist — some fiiiesse in penciUiug,

by a niggling touch, to produce fulness 
of »abject. This ia the very rererse of 
what wo sea in Cuyp or Wilson, and 
even, with oU his high fioiabing, in Claude. 
I have been warning our friend Collins 
against this, and waa also urging young 
Landaeer to beware of it; and in what I 
bare been doing lately myself, hare bean 
studying much from Kembrandt and from 

In 1826 be was in Italy, nnd his journal in March of that year contain* 
an account of the ancient decorations of Poiopeii, and of the style and

ordinate in tlieii pictures, Sir Joshua 
had Ibis remarkably, and could eren 
m.ike the featuret of the face tell orer 
everything, however stronfly jiainted. I 
find that repose and breadth lo th» 
shadows and balf-tinta do a great deal 
towards it ZotTany's figures derive great 
conse(|nencc from this, and I find that 
those who have studied light and shadow

" I pass to that so peculiarly striking 
to an artist, viz. tlie paintln(;s on the 
walls of the houses. This mode of de- 
coration appeiu-s to hare been used as 
much in ancient times as it is still in 
modern Italy, and, instead of being done 
by stamps as here, or by printed paper as 
in Engbind, entirely by the hand of the 
artist. The ornaments consist of ara- 
besque, with panellings, architectural 
ornaments, and square or round medal- 
lions, representini; subjects of poetry or 
of fancy ; in other place* stucco bas- 
reliefs, (the grounds painted of a deep blue, 
or other colour, like cameos) take the 
place of pictures ; and sometimes the ar- 
chitectural ornaments are put In a kind of 
perspective. For all this only one sort of 
material is used, water-colour or temper* ; 
neither oil, varnish, wax, or fresco, seem 
at all to have been known or used by 
them. In the decorative part the colours 
are very unbroken, an much so that one 
may tell the colours used. The uchren, 
yellow and red, are very strongly marked. 
Indian red, or something like it, is very 
perceptibleM A green , of coppery origin ,

Tbc revival of a very liigb style of paintiog, both in manner and subject, 
in imitation or rivalry of the early mastxirs of the art, by the modern Ger- 
mani, with grent pretensions and great merits, is at present a subject of 
no curiosity to the lovers of painting both in England and abroad, 

Ik/: ids its future aims and what it has already done ; and Wilkie, 

icu HI Lifrmany, not only became acquainted with the principal artists, 
iConicIius, Ac. but paid all due attention to their works. 

' Of 1W« acbool, (hn writes from 
Be,) OUT own rounlrjmen here hare,

Ihe Gemwa nv , , i' t^' form a class 

both new and distinct — are more of a sect 
Ibu a acbool. Tbey have abjureil all the 
tdithmenta of roodi^m art, and have 
•c back to the apostolic age of paint- 

ing ; have began where Raphael began, by 
studying Raphael's oioiter, in hopes the 
same schooling may a second time produce 
an equally successful scholar. They af- 
feet the dress of that early period, and in 
their pictures imitate the dry simplicity 
of its improved taste ; and such is their 
drvotedncss, that two of them have 
cbaugt-d their religion from Lutheran to 
Catholic, to feel with more intensity the 
subjects of the Italian master, making 
their art a religious profession rather than 
a worldly occupation." 

And in another letter written from Kensington, to his friend Mr. James 
Hall, at Rome, on the same subject, he says. 

Bernini in reducing marble to the pic- 
turesque, have imposed upon painting tba 
feeling and restraints of ancient sculpture* 
Still in the works of these Germans, 
which I admired extremely, there is too 
much left out, and dispensed with, for 
qualities long left heliiud in the march of 
invention. The world that has once seen 
the graudcur of Michael Angelo, and the 
breadth of Rembrandt. Is incapable of 
being excited by early sim|ilicily ; it ii 
only as a part of a study, and not as >

tbr art. These, with the greatucss after- 
wards attjuncd, hare somewhat the con-

of the monastic ('harles the Fifth, nbile 
bard by, in a neglected room, or rather 
passage, hangs, like a mouldy escutcheon, 
tbe famous apotheosis of that moanreh, by 
Titian. Indeed, here, in this vsat bnild- 
ing, are numerous works of tarious merits 
and pretensions ; yon have domes, ceil- 
ings, and cloisters, painted by one of tJic 
Pellegrinis and Luca Giordano ; the latter 
of whom, with Ribera, the Spagnolctto of 
Italian art, you meet with at every turn. 
Tbere are Raphaels, Rubenses, Vandykes, 
Tintorctlos, and Pnul Veroncges s but, 
aboTc all, the number of the Titians sur- 
prised me. It looks like the rery work- 
shop of this master ; — one I sought for, 
witn great eipoctation, which you well 
know from the sketch Mr. M'cst had. The 
iiictiire is alone at one end of the great 
ball of tbe refectory, and its merits for 
beanty of composition and arrangement of 
colours we would agree upon ; but to in- 
quire why il is without the usual tones of 
bis other works would, were yuu present, 
be to throw down the npple of discord. It 
neither wants- strength nor lu.'^tre, but it is 
without ginzinc: and witliout tran>pBrency, 
nnd destitute uf that rich external glow 
which distinguishes the labours of Titian. 
On returning to Madrid, to the Museum 
of the Prado, Titian still continues su. 
preme of the Italian school. The Bac- 
chanals of his earlier style, a ctmipanlou 
to Bacchus and Ariadne, i^ a delicious 
piece of colouring. But the Spanith 
seboot is, to a stranger, the great object of 
interett. Tbe works of Jnan Bitlista

I think, detain you long 

and Murillo, who give origumlity to the 

school of Spain. Of the former tUere are 

from sixty to seventy pictures, portr«lta«,

this is bis weak point, being most tr«A 
(|uently cold, black, and without tninsptil

him : but, in colour, Reynolds Is tuncl) 
beyond him, and so is Murillo. Coo

nothing like this ever be done again ? I« 
such toning really not to be neproduced ? 
I wish to believe the talent exislf, and am 
sure the material cxiate. But we bavo 
now got another system ; our criterion of 
judging is changed ; we prefer a something 
else, or, what is still more blinding, there 
is a something else we mistake for it. 
Another picture, with which I was greatly 
pIcJiiicd, wa^lhc Assumption of the Virgin, 
by Fro. liartoiomeo, at Lncca. Tliis pic- 
ttire, painted by a monk liefore the time 
of Raphael, and in the retirement of a 
mnvent, ba>, with the finer qualities o( 
the period of Raphael,* 6U|>er8dded all the 
inventions in colour and effect of Rubeut 
and Reuibrandt. This is a style for i/i7< 
Ion to follow ; brightness and richnc's are 
here combined. West often talked of this 
picture ; and our friend Woodburn used 
to say he would place it by the aide of lbs 
Transfiguration. I perhaps say more of 
colour than I ought, this, aa you kooir, 
being with some of our friends the dii> 
potable subject. Rir George BnaiimoDt 
used to remark that water-coloured draw- 
ings had toiuted oar exhibitions. I bava 
observed throughout my travels this dif- 
ference between the pictures of the pre- 
sent day and the old masters, that tbey 
are never found in the same room, and 
seldom iu tbe same gallery. CoUeolora

We shall conclude onr extracts on these proftstional subjects with souio 
ccount of the principles of painting prevalent in England. The following 
libservations on the defective princi|)les of the English school, and on their 
nperfect views of art, in a letter to his friend Mr. Collins, are well 
orthy of remark. 

" I need nol detail to yon what I have 
en in the Eacuriol, in Madrid, or SevilUi; 
j ii general ideas alone I with to advert 
to. Being the only member of our acade- 
my who has seen Spain, perhaps it is to 
\ regretted that I see it with annoknow- 
dgcd bias or prejudice, in which I fear 
rcely any will participate. With some 
my kindest friends, indeed, much of 
jMut I have seen and thought will cost 
' etween us an influence like the apple of 
jlcord ; and if some of our youths, with 
matured minds, — while I write this 
lith one hand, fancy me coTcrtiig uiy face 
itL the other, — should venture now that 
entrance to the mrsterioua land haa 
en opened, across the Bidasson. what a 
pnflict in tesLiraony there would be. The 
^irituol VelsKqucz, whose jirinciple and 
Sir Thomas Lawrence so justly 
be true philosophy of art, would be 
I with all the dash and splaxh that 
Dgve, pen, or pencil, is capable of, while 
e simple Murillo, perhaps despised like 
oldsmith, for his very excellence, would 
■vo his CorreKgio-like tones transformed 
bto the flovvr- "-■ ' 1 ss of a ixiloured

prints waiting my (rrival ; among them 
arc three from Rcjnolds. These, coming 
as I do from Velaiiqneg and Titian, seem 
the work of a kindred spirit. With these 
ore aUo some prints from works of inyown, 
which, OS from my picture at Munich. I 
have learned an useful lesson. They 
strengthen me in what I felt most doiibt< 
ful, and weaken my confidence in what I 
felt most assured of. I feel the wisdom 
of Sir George Beaumont's advice, to re- 
flect that white if not light, and that de- 
tail is not finith. A casual remark in one 
of your own letters, though I have before 
noticed it to you, has made a deep im- 
pression. Your observation on sering 
the surface of my picture of the Penny 
Wedding in the Royal Coi .!«or, 

was unexpected, but haf ' and 

useful to me, for I have >..m ' :•

Having confinud ourselves altogether to the painter, it would not be 
fur to conclude williotit aliening one feature of the man to appear in the 
portTMt. We ilo not speak of Wilkie'g general character, which was most 
•suable and worthy of his iiatne j but we must extract an amusing 
koecdote of that pHtriotic ardour, which seems to distinguish the inhabi- 
Unts of everT nation, exactly in proportion as no other persons can see 
•ay thing in the btloved country to admire or esteem. 

" I remember once, on my way with 
WilVie (says Mr. Cunaingham) to ■ Lord 
Mayor's dinner, in the earlier days of 
enr iifquaintanee, I told him of an old 
Scotch 1 ' ' I to draw,

dinner. ' I'm of that ilk, air,' was his 
reply ; < my father was a Scotchman.' 
' 'Was he really,' exclaimed Wilkie, grasp- 
ing the other's hand i]uite brotherly; 
' and my mother was Irish 1' ' Ay, ay, 
was she really ;' and the hand relaxed its 
fervour ; ' and I wo$ born in England.' 
AVilkie let go Thomson's band altogether, 
turned his back on him, and indulged in 
no further conversatioo. My friend 'Tbom* 
son, a wit as well as a painter, perhaps 
caricatured this conversation ; hut I rv- 
mcmbor it was received as true to the 
spirit of Wilkie when it was first told. 
His lore of country was not more remark* 
able than his prudence of speech. He 
seldom spoke without reliectioa ; he 
uttered all he sold as deliberately as he 
painted ; and he never drew or painted 
at random. When Wilkic tirat began to 
etiiibit at the Royal Academy, the success 
of The Village Politicians was so decided, 
thnt his friends gave him a dinner on the 
occasion, fine, the pertest of the com- 
pany, rose and said, ' We have met here 
to do honour to genius ; but, before we MB 
honour genius, we raiut honour joatico :

' A full and free reform in tlic Honae of

and tbuching the lip ere the toast was 
given, uud which Wilkie, ut least, did not 
expect. Thrrr was no time to proteat,

and feelings of the public mind. He laid it down ns n niasim, that M 
painter %vlio desired to rise in and tlinint;li his art, ^liouid consider tll^| 
demand for his rotnmodities in the market, and (he ch.iracter and infliieiica 
of hiti piircliascrs, and (it his \vorks to their wishes. The nrchilectiirp oM 
the houses in England is not adajitod to pictures of a very larj," n- 

is the general feeling eleVMted to the highest subjcctd of ait. Tli' :i) 

allegories in the Lnxemburg, or the triumphs of Ca-sar at Hamptuii t ourt, 
would long wait for purchasers ; and all the glories of the Vatican or 
the Escurial would look in vain for a temple worthy of their fame. Noj 
English artist has ever been loved for the produce of historical rompo" 
I sitions ; Fuseli was almost starved by his Gods and Doenions ; his Milton 
Gallery, the work of wild but powerful genius, brought him nothing but 
an increase of fame ; and the example of some living artists of great 
merit could corroborate the fact. But this observation will apply also to 
painters of inferior rank and more popular character. Tliougli the price 
of Wilkie's pictures varied from about '200 to 500 guineas, jct such wasn 
i the labour of thought employed in them, such the time expended in col^ 
lecting materials, and in discovering fresh characters, such his anxiety t^fl 
make his composition full of meaning, to stamp each person with distincM 
and indelible character, and to bring out to the full the sentiment he in«l 
I tended to express, — that no price w hich could be asked even of liberall 
' purchasers, would compensate him for the time employed on them. Heucekl 
like his brother artists, he was obliged to look for ])rofit to portraits, Inl 
the demand for (Kirtraiture, his biographer tells us, ho perceived tlicn 
domestic feeling of the people, and in the encouragement of this branchl 
of art, private patronage is not niggard of its stores, ^'ct even hrrgl 
Wilkic found, as others before him, tliat it was difficult to satisfy the publitfl 
1 mind, and especially those who were immediately interested in the portraitifl 
The first thing thatthe sitter nud his friends require, is an nccunitc likeness ; ■ 
yet experience proves that a too ncvcre and accurate likeness may be in a 
portrait. A friend of Wilkie's observed, that there were two natural things „ 
in B picture to be counteracted, — the want of movement and the want v jm 
I life, — to supply these, there must be more of youth and health than tlieV 
person who is represented Bccms to possess. Besides this, every portniitifl 
should be ix poetic likeness of the original, as every land8ca|>0 is a gcncra-V 
I lizcd conception of the beauties of some scene in nature. Certain aller.t-^ 
I tioQS must be made in the arrangement of the features even of the finest a 
countenance. Sir'iTiomas Lawrence used to say, that, even in the majestic J 
head of Mrs. Siddons, there were parts and forms which did not seem to bc*X 
[ long to her, and should therefore be omitted in her portraiture. It is not only^ 
tresemblauce but chnrnctcr that is re(|niied ; therefore nil that in ;icei«^ 
pdental, temporary, fugitive, extiaiicoiis, should be kftout; nil Ih^t i«liabl(»fl 
■ to alteration and change. Wilkic himself tells us, " that a <^'' orateV 

I likeness i» by no means necessary to recognition ; that n t I ro'V 

I semblance of the persjn ill supplies the impression left of K ';o, J

on the nonh and west sides by a plain 
»tone bench. The (lavemeiit at the 
western end rises one step, forniing a 
sort of dais. Thecastcrii wall, towards 
the chaacel, is of considerable thick- 
ness, and pierced by a semicircular 
Norman arch, with plain block im- 
posts, and without ornament or mould ■ 
ing of any kind. The roof of the 
nave Is of oak, of a simple pattern, but 
in excellent taste. 

In the central lino of llic nave, to- 
wards the west end but below the 
dais, stands the font. The bowl is 
heary Norman, qundrangalar above 
and rounded below, and rests upon a 
short cylindrical stem, which in its 
turn is supported by a square block, 
chamfered at the angles. 

The chancel is very small. The 
north and east walls show the herring- 


bone woik ; the south wall is con- 
cealed by foliage. In the north and 
south walls arc Ireibil-hcndcil loops.

The foundation of this church is 
undoubtedly early Norman, earlier 
than any visible part of Llandaff. 
The north wail of the nave, and the 
, north east, and probably the south 
wftll of the chancel, arc original, as is 
the arch into tlie chancel, and proba- 
rbly the font. The south side of the 
nave, probably its west end, and the 
north, seem to be Decorated, but the 
south dour is late perpendicular. 

This church has been suffered to fall

it received any repairs. At present 
the roof every where is iu bad order,

rithout surprise (knowing how grate-

Ilis expressions of regard concerning 
liose whom he looked upon ht his

explaining in some degree Johnson's, 
partiality towards her, and ox a curioua

I would add that It appears to me, 
as well from the introduction of the 
subject as from the style, that the 
whole of the eleventh chapter of the , 
ninth and concluding book of tbej 
"Female Quixote" was written byj 
Dr. Johnson, and to the ioternal] 
evidence may be added that the title'L

liONDtNUNA. — The Church of the Black Friars. 



So it has been ami ever will be In 
|<all future time with fanatic teachers of 
fOovelty in religiuD ; the useful, quiet, 
I and unpretending poitioa of the 
-Christian Church are borne down and 
consigned to obscurity by charlatans 
'in doctrine. To the construction of a 
Pncw church at the Dlackfriars, on the 
hiite which has been described, Ed- 
r.Vrard I. and his distinguished consort 
||£leBnor were great benefactors. The 
iflatter was indeed accounted the fonnd- 
IjreM of the building, and when the 
|,died her heart reposed witbin its con- 
■secrated walls. There also was depo- 
sited the heart of her son, the Prince 
Alphonso. A long list of noble person- 
ages whose mortal remains were cn- 
I'tombed at the Ulackfriars church is 
given by Stow, of whom a few maybe 
iicrc particularised. — Margaret, sister 
I'.to the King of Scots, who died in 
;i2l4, Hubert de Burgh, Earl of Kent, 
^t>otb translated from the old church of 
lie fraternity in Holborn, — Isabel, 
oWife of Roger Bigod, Earl Marshal, — 
Vlic«, daughter of Earl Warren, after- 
iwarda Countess of Amodel, — the 
I'Earls of March and Hereford, — Eliia- 
•beth. Countess of Aruudel. — Joan. 
first wife of Guido de Brian, — the 
tliuchess of Exeter,— Tiptoft, Earl of 
rVVorccstcr, — ^Tutchet, Lord Audley, 
l(both beheaded for treason), — Courte- 
l^ay, titular Karl of Devonshire, &c. 
At the suppression of monasteries 
jirTliomas Cawarden, of Blechingly, 
bad a grant of the cliurchand precinct 
»of the Blackfriars, London, and of the 
f pariah Church of St. Ann within the 
^eame. He was st the siege of Bou- 
logne with Henry VIU. and held the

HttH of the Black Friars noticed by Shaksptarc. [Ang. 

ninety-eight feet in depth ; this wu 
probabi)' the principnl tpproach to 
the monastery, its charcli, and other 
huildiiiBis. The Emperor Charles V. 
OQ his coming to FCngland in 1522 wai 
lodged in the QIackrriars ; and afttr 
the turrender of the monastery it be* 
caiDC, from its plea»ant situation, over- 
iooltlng the river, a favourite residence 
for many distinguished persons at* 
tached to the rourt. 

London, by the suppression of mo> 
nastcries, and the destructive confla- 
gration with which it was visited in 
the century succeeding that great ec> 
clesiastical revolution, was indeed 
shorn of its ancient architectural splen- 
dour. The pointed style is peculiarly 
adapted to church architecture, and 
noble were the edifices which our fore* 
fathers erected in that roodr of build* 
ing, in honour of Almighty God. The 
genius even of Wren has not been 
able to compensate for the loss we 
have sustained of the gothic churches 
of London of the middle age. All 
know the church of .St. Saviour'* 
Southwaik,of which one half remains ( 
but the other a barbarous feeling has 
within our recollection destroyed. Of 
similar dimeosionii * was the church 
uf the Black or' Dominican Friars, 
possessing this advantage over the 
Priory Church in Southwark, that it 
stood elevated on the rising ground 
chosen in the earliest ages for the site 
of Ix)ndon. The Blackfriars' sacred 
ediflce has been laid low, the A>he» of 
the noble dead which it contained 
scattered tu the winds, and chanc« 
has now revealed the few architectoral 
and sepulchral fragments connected 
with it which have found llirlr last 
refuge in the Gentleman's Magarino. 
How truly is the press a sanctuary 
against the utter annihilatioo of many 
liisturical monument4! 

A J. K. 

measured each 1 10 feet. There was a 
chapter house west of the cloister 44 
feet in length by 22 in breadth, 
here was a fralry or common hall 
■ the buttery of the noble dimen- 
lions of Q5 feet by M, and doubtU-ss 
proportionate height. In this spa- 
iious cnamber several parliaments were 
held in the year 1529. Cardinal Cam- 
eius, the Pope's legate, with Cardinal 
7ol»ey, held their court in it to de- 
ermlne on the validity of the mar- 
riage between the King and Catharine 
f Arragon. 

In the fourth scene of the fifth act 
Henry VUI. the stage note for the 
cene describes a hall in Blackfriars, 
od the entry of Campcius and Wol- 
ey into it with great ceremony : in 
ordinary chaml>er could such a 
plendid forensic pageant have been 
'The precinct of the Blackfriars was

MarvTclial de France, a copy of an 
Ofiginal, would hardly be worth no-

which it bearii, and which coromemo-

W( find to commemorate tbe beauty 
of Agnes Sorel, tbe patriotic mistress 
of Charles VII. If this be a faithful 
delineation she must have been a wo- 
man of agreeable features, but not of 
very striking beauty. There ia, bow- 
ever, a decided expression of sweetness 
visible in her countenance. 

Wc now come to another picture 
mentioned by Montfaucon, who states 
it to bare been copied from one in the 
collection of M. de Gagnieres (after- 
wards in that of the Marecbal D'Es- 
trde*), and to have been made of ex- 
actly the same dimensions. The sub-

^logue of the gallery bint 
1' lit the par- 

I wbcu be 

was about to undertake the waragainat 
the Swiss, in the course of which ho 
was killed at tbe siege of Nancy. Th# 
Duke of Burgundy is reprcscnlcd 
sitting on his throne under a canopy 
or dais, in the middle of one side of 
the hall of the Parliaiarnt. and kill 
name is inscribed over bis head 

Caroliu Dux Burgundia;. 

He is dressed in a suit of arninur. 
and over the cuirass wears a long cloak 
lined with ermine ; upon bis head is a 
crown or coronet, and in bis left hand 
he holds a roll. Thiee steps lead op 
to the throne, and on the second of 
them is seated a seigneur oocovcred, 
with a sword in his right hand. 
The name of this personage is not 
recorded in the picture, but it is pre- 
sumable that he was the Duke's Mar* 
sbal or Grand Kquerry, the Dukea 
of Burgundy of the second race, as 
Montfaucon observes, not having the 
office of Constable ettablishcd in their 
court. At tbe bottom of the steps 
are the mace-bearers standing with 
their maces on their shoulders. " The 
most honourable side of the assembly," 
says Montfaucon, " appears to have 
been on the left of the Duke: by tbe 
side of the throne we first see this in- 
scription, Chanceiier Chff du Coitfeil. 
The Chancellor is named G. Hugonet, 
who was appointed to that office in 
U'l, and decapitated by tbe inhabit- 
ants of Ghent in 1470, shortly after 
the death of Duke Charles. Over the 
heads of the three officers who sit nest 
we read the word " Preiident." The 
last of these wa* advocate- fiscal, as 
there is written on his robe in Flemish, 
Adnocaet- fitcafl, and these four per- 
sonages are all in long robes with raps. 
The next inscription is Qualre Cheva- 
liert. Two of them in the middle wear 
the full habit of the order of tbe 
Golden Fleece, with tbe bat and grand 
collar; tbe two others are in robes 
like the other members of tlie Parlia. 
ment ; but wear the decoration of the 
order suspended from tbe neck by a 
ribband. Above tbe beads of the next 
eight members are written their names, 
with the designation of Huit Conseilleri 
d'talite. Od tbe right band of the

throac are seated lix masters ot re- 
quests and twelve lay counsellors, 
their names being all written over 

I their heads. The robes of all these 
bfficers are red ; but the toques of the 
former are red, like their dress, while 
those of the latter are black. Oii the 
•' floor of the bouse " arc three regis- 
trarics engaged in writing at a table, 
placed in front of the chancellor, and 
four procurators-general are seated on 
a bench with a back to it, beneath the 
ecclesiastical counsellors. Opposite 
to them, and beneath the master of 
requests, are four secretaries standing 
in front of their bench, which has no 
back like that of the registraries, and 
all are speaking to the assembly, as 

Cmay be inferred from their gestures, 
Their bench is covered with a che- 
quered cloth. On A bench the farthest 
removed from the Duke, and opposite 
to his throne, are seated the lower 
otiicers of the Parliament, one of whom 
is called Rrcfveur dea Erploira. Some 
arc seated with their faces turned to- 
wards the Duke, others have their 
faces turned towards the spectator, 
and are speaking to persons " below 
the bar," who arc come to have their 
causes tried. Two of these are con- 
sulting together, and one of them holds 
I a paper in which his case is contained. 
^^ft^QOther is speaking to an officer 
^^nvithrn the bar about his cause, which 
^^b« going to be called on. A woman 
^^bvith a black veil ending in a long 
^^ point is speaking to an officer holding 
a rod in his hand, while another 
officer within the bar is taking down 
in writing the words of a man who 
is speaking to him about a cause. 
At the end of the bench of officers 
is an usher with a rod, seated, and 
holding a paper in bis hand. The 
xecution of this piclurr, which is 
ighly interesting, from its giving an 
iccurate idea nf the judicial forms of 
that day, is good ; the faces of the 
personages, though small, have the 
distinctive character of portiails, and 
Ihe dresses and architectural details 
f the assembly are done with great 
re. It is one of tlic most curious 
lictures of the collection.

Another small picture close to the

the portraits of Maximilian, the Em- 
press Maria of Burgundy, F^hilip I. 
of Spain, his sous Charles \. and | 
Ferdinand Emperor of Germany, and ' 
his son-in-law Louis 11. King of Hun-

porary portrait of Maria of Burgundy, i 
and others of Philip I, and Charles I 
V^ complete the scries of records of| 
this illustrious house. 

Numerous copies of pot traits ofl 
royal personages are to be met with I 
in this part of the gallery, such as 
those of Louis XII., Anne de Bre- 
tagne, Louise de Savoie, Regent of 
France, Jeanne la Folic of Aragon, 
mother of Charles V., &c. Of the 
original pictures most worthy of no- 
tice we may mention those of Jeanne 
de France, the first consort of Louis 
XII., who, after her divorce, took the 
title of Duchess of Berry, and received 
the honour of canonization at her 
death ; a curious portrait of Lorenzo 
de Medici, a small one of Cardinal de 
Medici by Titian, and several small 
but not very flattering pictures of the 
noble families of Montmorency and 
La Tremouillc. 

We also observe here two good 
contemporary portraits of Francis I. 
and Claude his queen, but they are not 
of sufficient value to make a descrip- 
tion necessary. There is a large but 
badly-executed picture nf Henry VIII. 
of England, from the collection of the 
Sorbonne, and it is of no authority. 
On the other hand a |iicture by Cra-

great value. By the aide of ' r

which, we should hope, will not long 

The portrait of a personage of very 
different character, Diane de Poictiers, 
is in this part of the gallery, but it 
does not do justice to her great beauty, 
and will not bear inspection after 
having seen her bust and statue by 
Jean Cousin. 

A fine portrait of Wiliam I. of Nas- 
sau, the great founder of the inde- 
pendance of Holland, by F. Porbus, 
sen. and several portraits of members 
of the illustrious houses of Montmo- 
rency, La Rochefoucauld, and Coligny, 
are the roost remarkable that remain 
to attract attention on the walls of 
this room. This apartment, as we 
have already observed, is one of the 
largest in the scries, and the preceding 
brief selection of the more prominent 
pictures in it, may suffice to give an 
idea of the nature and value of its 
contents. We have often wiled away 
hours of most satisfactory meditation 
-within its walls, and have always left 
it with regret. 

Mr. Ubbas. May 8/A. 

AMONG the rules laid down in 
Hyginus, relating to the castrameta- 
tioo of the Romans, he says, (with 
reference to the choice of ground for a 
camp,) "Those defects which our an- 
cestors called riofercoE (mothers-in- 
law) ought always to be avoided ; 
such as a hill commanding the camp, 
by which the enemy can descend in 
attack, or see what is done in the 
camp ; or a wood where the enemy 
can lie in ambush ; or ravines or val- 
leys by which they can stdal unawares 
on the camp ; or such a situation of 
the camp that it can be suddenly 

Uooded from a river." Improbable as 

^t may seem, yet it can be dcmon- 
Itrated that these defects (Itirse no- 
rca of ilie Romans.) aie at this day 

'to be traced, by nearly the same 
name, in the vicinity of the sites of 
ancient camps in this country ; for, 
although these places are now called 

itnd wtitten Nower, Nona, and 
<0BK, yet such may have been the 
fcr "I'lrlr^ of [iioiiouucln;! nnrvr-a 

no one has, 1 believe, ever accounted 
for the name, or attempted to do so.' ' 
I will mention three instances in de- 
monstration of my views upon this 

Upon that eminence, near Dorkingf 1 
in Surrey, called Bary-hill, (at thej 
foot of which is the mansion ofj 
Charles Barclay, esq.) there was, nn- f 
doubtedly, a Roman camp. Tbertfj 
are other proofs of such being the I 
fact besides the name. Another ant I 
a higher part of the same eminence' j 
(lying nearer to the town of Dorking) ] 
is called " The Nover," and it com-, 
mands, as it were, that part of the 
elevation which is known as Dury-hill^ i 
At Headley, in the same count}', ' 
there is, on very high ground, a wood j 
called the Buty (and frequently Thff j 
Old Bury) where there certainly was,') 
heretofore, a camp. An adjoining' 
and overlooking eminence is called 
The JVore, and, as frequently, tlje 

Burgh House at Bansted, in Sarrejr 
(not far from Epsom Downs), also 
stands upon the site of a Roman 
camp. Of this being the fact there 
can be no question, as discoveries 
have been there made indicating its 
Roman origin or character. Close to 
this (now merely separated by a road) 
is somewhat higher ground, called 
Nork, upon which stands the mansion 
called Notk Honse.* 

In each of these three instances one 
of the disadvantages or defects pointed 
out by Hyginus existed. The No- 
verca (Nower, Nore, or Nork) Bp» 
pears to have overlooked its adjoining 
bury or camp. At Burgh (in Ban* 
stcd) the Romans evidently endea> 
voured to counteract the imperfection 
they bad thus to contend with, by 
raising a large barrow or tumulus at 
the extremity of Nork, and in such a 
position as therefrom the camp and 
the adjacent country could be 
watched. + [TVinii/i, says Dr. Clarke, 
were raised by the Romans in their 
camps and citadels ; certainly for re- 
rvnniii stance. Vide Fosbroke.] As 
some proof of the Roman origin of 

here arc very many 1"

Note. Nonrer, and Nork, although 
thus slightly varying in orShographT. 
cao, it is plain, e<iually claim ±io- 
rerca for their parent. 

T)tat many other instances of the 
proximity of Nower and Bury (as ap- 
plied to pUcee) exist in this country 
1 am convinced ; and 1 trust I shall 
see such communicatioos to you (in- 
duced by the present one) upon the 
subject, as will strongly confirm my 
hypothesis. Do not the same coin- 
cidences exist in France, and in other 
txiuntries which the Romans oc- 
cttpied, as well as in Britain ? 

There arc, I feel persuaded, more 
remains of the language of the Ro- 
mans in the names of places, in this 
island, than have been generally ima- 
gined. To evince this I will shortly 
trouble you with another communica- 
tion on the subject. 

Yours, &c. J.P, 

" Est, Est, E»t." 

Ma. Urban, Athimevm, April. 

SOME light has lately been thrown 
on the remarkable insciiption com- 
mencing with the above words, well 
known to all travellers who, on their 
mote from Florence to Rome, pass 
through the town of Mootcfiascone. 
In a work entitled " Comentario su I' 
originc della Citta di Montefiascone," 
published in that town in 1S41, is 
given an engraving of the monument 
of the German, commonly said to have 
been a prelate, who died there of a 
surfeit caused by indulging too much in 
the wine for which that place is so cele- 
brated. The tomb is in the church of 
St. Flavian, and contains the following 
inscription, as given in the above 
work : — 

" Est, Est, E«t, propter nimium 
Eat bic jo: Deuc Dominas 
Mens mottmu Eat.' ' 

Above it, is represented the figure of 

which are a vtcU known object, 
risible for man; milca. 


a person in flowing robes, with a kind 
of coronet on the head, anil 
a broad facing to his robe 
in this fashion 
eitending from the breast 
downwards ; on each side 
of the head n is what 
is commonly rf called a 
wine-glass. *-* though 
it has, 1 think, in the en- 
gravinc:, as much the appearance of an 
hour-glass ; and a shield of arms. 
It is not easy to de- 
Icide what animal tha 
[rampant figure is in> 
tended to portray. 
There is on the moDU> 
mcnt no representation 
of crosier, ring, or 
mitre, so that it is not 
probable that the person was a prelate; 
if he had been so his title would pro> 
bably have been given in the inscrip- 
tion. " La Cronacadci Curati" dates 
the event in the year 1113. 

The victim of the good wine of 
Montefiascone left " ii ricco suo equi- 
paggio" (said to have been worth 
13,000 crowns) to the " commune," 
to be applied to pious and useful in- 
stitutions : and the revenues arc now 
employed in the support nf a seminary 
and a hospital. In the work which 
contains this account is printed, for 
the first time, a sonnet, by Casti, on 
■• Est, Est, Est." . 

Among other circumstances regard- 
ing Montefiascone, it is stated that 
Thomas (Canlilupe), bishop of Here- 
ford, died there in 1287, when on hia 
way from Rome to England, and that 
his flesh was interred there, hia 
bones being sent to his native country, 
where so much blood miraculously 
dropped from them that the bishop'a 
great enemy, the Earl of Gloucester, 
was converted by the miracle, for 
which and other prodigies the bishop 
was canonized by Pope John XXll, 
It may be remarked that this date and 
place of his death do not agree with 
other accounts — the date certainly ap' 
pears to be incorrect. 

James " the Third" was married at 
Montefiaiicone. September Ist, 1719, 
to Clementina the bishop, 
who, on the Inst day of the following 
year, baptised their son, " the i'cince 
of Wales," at Ronw, whither be wa*

called for the purpoic. Some church 
ornaments presented by Jatne« and bis 
nik to the hishop arc, I believe, still 
preserved at Montefiascone. 

Some doubt, which appears to exist 
regarding the name of the unfortunate 

German, may be decided, perhaps, by 
gome of yourcorrespondents acquainted 
with the arms ofthc ancient families of

ESTIMATING then, in further ap-

dence for the partizaos of Reform, we 
may ask, whether in liteiature, when 
the study of the classics constituted its 
leading culture, the Italian commen- 
tators, to whom, in fact, Europe owes 
rsscDtially the restoration of letters, 
and to whom we are indebted for 
nearly all the originals — the entire, 
without exception, of the Latin, and, 
save a very few, for the Greek, authors 
of antiquity, were, I say, theManutil, 
Victorius, Sigooius, with numerous 
others, surpassed in critical acumen, 
iaferior iu elucidation, or less felicitous 
in defining the genuine texts? And, 
in native productions during that 
century, what rivals, in the precincts 
of Protestantism, can be opposed to

during the exasperation of the Gun-

peculiar object of popular odium, 
was scarcely to be expected, however 
sincere its internal persuasion majr 
have been, even from more ardent 
Catholics than a stage actor, or play- 
wright, may be considered. His 
father's religious belief rests un- 
disputed on the evidence of his extant 
will, given by Malone, vol. I. part ij.

contemporary, but long the survivor of

his original sect the Anabaptists, or, 
as they now call themselves, teleio- 
baptists, for the Catholic communion, 
in which he continued to live, and in 
which he died. Many, very many, 
features of resemblance between him 
and our Bnrd may be traced, in birth, 
genius, fortune, &c. ; and the parallel 
is constantly drawn by the Dutch 
enthusiasts of his merits. Of him, as 
of Shaksperc, French arrogance has

Again, in France, of which Calvin 
(page ClI) 14 declared at once the 
rcrormrr of her language and noraU, 
who does, or patiently could, read his 
corapositions in her tongue i As well 
might the English student be con- 
demned to wade through the cumbrous 
mass of Thomas Norton's translation 
of his great work, comprising, with 
the table, about fourteen hundred 
closely printed octavo pages, now be- 
fore me, and bearing the date of IS'S. 
" Philip de Coraines," on the contrary, 
and " Amyot" are still perused with 
dt'light in their original idiom, greatly 
more pleasurable to read than his, to 
which, however, I am far from re- 
fusing merit. Indeed, his own estimate 
of it was by no means humble, as we 
learn from his " Defensio contra Wcst- 
phalum (Opusc. p. 842) j nor could, 
we may well conceive, a person of his 
energy of mind and dominant spirit, 
wield a feeble pen. Conscious and 
proud, therefore, was he of the talent, 
which is granted him by D'Alembert 
and Villemaln, and not disputed even 
by Bossuet, a much higher authority, 
because so much more conversant with 
his writings, "Donnons-lui done," 
says his great adversary, " puis qu'il 
1e veut tant, ccttc gloire d'avoir aussi 
bien ^crit qu'bomme de son allele," 
words obviously, however, more of con- 
cession, than persuasion, (Variations, 
liv. ix.) But, as compared with 
Amyot, the opinion of no inadequate 
judge, and his contemporary as well 
Fas Calvin'f, Michel de Montaigne, 
[decides the superiority. In his 
llCsjays, book H., ch. iv, he says, 
'*' Je donne Bvec raison, ce rac seroble,

Wow, the death of Comines, of whose 
fttyle the sagacious Gascon (iivre ii.,

to distinction in that prostituted line 
of composition. (See Dr. Dibdin'a

though M . D'Aubign^ preferably quotes 
the better Latin, and to which this 
dedication may be said, like D'.Mem- 
bert'a Preliminary Discourse to the 
Encyclopedia, to be, " un vestibule 
digne de I'^difice," is, doubtless, a 
very able exposition of his doctrine, 
ycl, most certainly, raised to an absurd 
exaggeration of eminence by sectarian 
partiality, when bis disciple Thurlus 
characterized it as second only to 
apostolical excellence.

In hisardourforentiatiog all faculties 
and celebrities in his cause, M. 
D'Aubigne', at page 241 of the third 
volume already adverted to, appears 
anxious to ascribe the literary value 
of the Port Royal productions to the 
fact that the grandfather of the 
ArnanUU had been a Protestant, By 
a parity of deduction, the Catholics 
might justifiably claim for their body 
the genius of Milton, whose grand- 
father was a zealous adherent of their 
creed, and disinherited his son for 
abandoning it ; as we are assured by 
the poet's biographers. A less distant 
right would even assign them Shak- 
spere, whose father, as his testamentary 
record, above referred to, demonstrates, 
was a Catholic; and were not the 
parents of all the original reformers 
equally so ? This, indeed, from another 
pen, would be viewed u» an extra- 
ordinary course of argumentation, but 
|i) by no means in discord with our 
controvertist's mode of reasoning. U

Angers ; and the youngest, a third An- 
loinc, eminent, 1 have previously stated,

which Protestantism had then to en- 
fonnter. To name his works would 
be suflicient evidence of the fact, " Le 
Heovetsement de la Morale de Jesus 
Christ, par les Calvinistes," " La 
Pcrik'tuite de la Foy," &c. in proof 
of transubstantiation, conjuintly with 
Nicole, and numerous others of fervent 
coDtroversy. At a very early age, he 
was elected a doctor of Sorbonne, the 
highest degree of theological pro- 
fession ; and yet this is the family 
which M D'Aubign^ would fain con- 
t«rt into allies, and force into his 
camp. As well might he proclaim 
BoMuet tributary to his cause ; and, 
with far nearer approach to truth, 
would the Catholics reckon the Oxford 
Puseyitet in their com tnunion. History,

senists' definition of predestination

a line In favour of the Reformation 
never, I fear not to assert, issued from 
Port Koyal, whose inmates, in speech 
and letter, showed themselves, 1 re- 
peat, amongst the ablest and most 
zealous opponents of the religious 
system of which they are here pro- 
nounced the advocates. And, em- 
bracing the nation at large in intel- 
lectual comparison or cultivated rela- 
tion, not only did the nine-tenths of 
her eminent son!., in every nvocalion 
of knowledge or action, ptofess the 
Catholic worship, but received for the 
most part their education from the 
Jesuits, to whose colleges even Pro- 
testnnts sent their children, notwith- 
standing the interdict of tlieir synods, 
as we learn from the Huguenot Des- 
raaiseaui, in his biography of liayle,

usual with English Protestants to place 
their sons in the seminaries of St. 
Omer and Douay for early instractioo, 
or their daughters, with the same view, 
in educational convents. Yel Daylc,

the catholic creed. His innocence was 
unfortunntely proved too late; but bis 
family had the consolation of seeing liis 
memory relieved from the adhering slain— 
a service mainly due to the influence and 
exertions of Voltaire. Yet. not thirty 
years after the event, I found, to my

not irrational, were still impressed with

Great and deserved renown has long 
attached to Port Royal ; but, though 
I the acknowledged seat of learning and 
piety, the persecution its members 
bad to endure contributed in no small 
degree to this celebrity ; for, of their 
numerous productions, almost the only 
one of surviving fame is Pascal's Pro- 
vincial Letters. The literary merit of 
these letters no one can contest ; and 
to their publication Voltaire refers the 
fixation of the French language. Still, 
their influence, as well as that of the 
society whence they emanated, on the 
national literature or idiom, has been 
greatly exaggerated by our author ; 
for several writers, held more or less 
classical at this day, certainty owed 
to Pascal no obligation of style, such as 
Corneille, Moli^re, Quinault, La Fon- 
taine.Voitarr, La Rochefoucauld, Pellis- 
son, St. K^al, who were all his seniors. 
So was Descartes, whose " Uiscours 
dc la Mdthode," published in 1637. or 
full twenty years before the sublime 
hypochandriac's work of genius ap- 
peared, scarcely contains an obsolete 
word. And so were St. Evremond, 
and Bussi-Rabutin, the purity of 
whose style is praised by Voltaire, 
with others. But Port Royal's proud- 
est boast, because its direct fruit, 
was the education of Racine, though 
ao far from our acknowledgements 
being due to his masters for those im- 
mortal productions whicb shine with 
brightest efl°ulgencc amidst the glories 
of that Aug\istan era; it is, on the 
contrary, certain, that every exertion 
of personal authority, and every de- 
nunciation of religious penalty, were 
urged to divert the appliance nf his 
genius from its kindred pursuit. 
Madame dc Scvigne, whose letters, far 
more than Pascal's, may bid defiance

deeply sensitive to, the power of ridicule, 
not in Shaftesbury's representation, as 
a test of truth, but as the probe of 

Pascal's " Pcn«<?e»," though appa- 
rently the mere rudiments of some 
mighty couception, not fully traceable 
in this unfinished ontline, still, like 
the antique Torin, will be found un- 
erringly to display those elevated fa- 
cnltics of mind, which constitute ge- 
nius, and offer to ouradmiralion an in- 
tellect of the first compass. The frag- 
mentary collection was not, however, 
published till 1670, eight years after 
his death, nor even then so full as we 
now have it in the editions of Bossut 
and Keoooard. Thai circulated by 
Voltaire and Condorcet in 1/76, was, 
with their wonted disregard of truth, 
and recklessness of all means of cor- 
ruption, perverted in its sense by 
their commentaries, and estranged in 
the text by their interpolations. M. 
Cousin is now preparing an edition, I 
am happy to learn, grounded on Pas- 
cal's original manuscript, which I 
have seen in the royal library. It is 
singular enough that the spot conse- 
crated in sanctity of residence and 
venerated recollection by the pure and 
pious virgins, associated in devotion 
and charily, under the sacred charge 
of Angelica Arnauld, should now be 
the site of a lyivg-inhotpilal, the re- 
ceptacle, in its distinct attribution^, 
still more of guilt than of poverty. 
It is thus we sec the purlieus of the 
Parisian palace of justice, the sanc- 
tuary of law, made the chosen habita- 
tion of malefactors. Kcarly opposite, 
again, is the foundling-hotpital, which 
covers the ground formerly devoted to 
the noviciate seminary of the Orato-

The tarl^ Chris! iaim regarded as Jews. 


Mb. UnBAN, 

M i LLOT, in his Elcmcnls of Ancient 
Hislory. while discussing the ques- 
tion whether tlic em pcror Trajan w»s a 
persecutor of llip Christians, mentions, 
among other preilisposing causes, " la 
liaine centre Ics Juifs loujours dispo- 
e^s it la livohc. \'\<i(e da Judaiirae 
attachee & In nouvelle reli)!ion .... 
c'est ce qui occasionna Ics supplices 
dans plusieurs provinces, sans qu'il y 
cut d'edit general contreeux." (Vol. 
iii. p. 5.) There is a curious in. 
stance of this confounding of .ludaism 
with Christianity, and bntli with 
KgyptisD paganism, in the letter from 
Egypt, ascribed to Adrian, and ad- 
dressed to Servian, his brother-in- 
law. Not being able to refer to the 
original in Vopiscu?, 1 copy the words 
from Crevier's translation. — " Le pa- 
triarche memc des Juifs, lursiiu'il 
vieul en Egyptc, est force; par les uns 
d'offrir son cncens h Christ, et par les 
autres i\ S<irapis." (Hist, dcs Enip. 
Romains, iv. 393.) Whether the 
letter be genuine or not, the writer's 
ignorance is the same. That of the 
poet Rutilius is less gross, yet ho 
confounds the two religions in an ex- 
traordinary manner, when he at- 
tributes the spreading of Christianity 
to the conquest of Judea, and the con- 
veqnent dispersion of the Jewish 

Atqitc utinam nunquam Judea excisa fu- 

Pompeii bellis, iropcrioque Titi 1 
Latins etcisK |>eBlis contsgia serpuot, 

Victoresque «uos nntio victa prcitiit.* 

The same confusion appears in a 
celebrated passage of Suetonius, which 
has been often quoted by writers on 
the Evidences of Christianity : — " Ju- 
dieos, impulsore Chrcato. liciliett 
Christo] oasidutt tumultunntes Romk 
[Claudius] expulit." (Suet, in Clau- 
dio. c. 25.)

Ur. Jones, in his Greek and En^li-.ii 
Lexicon, gives //iw/W/'/ir as one ot tlic 
meanings of the wuid. Tyndale and 
Cianmcr b)th have this frloite • the 
English Geneva of 1557 hikhllialfrlltnr. 
and Dcza's Latin translation has utr.a 
term synonymous with every sense of 
nt and lii'Tot. Doddridge, too, who 
does not bind himself to the coiinnna 
version, retains the epithet. Our 
translators seem to have used it em- 
phatically, as serving, in the minds of 
the Jews, to contrast the meanness of 
Jesus' appearance with the magnitude 
of his declarations. Nor have they 
done so wiiJiout disci imination, for at 
Exod. xxxii. 1, and 1 Kings, xx. 7, 
they use the word mim as not quite so 
disiespcctful, since the former passage 
rcl.itcs to Mosos, and the latter to the 
king of Syria, though in cither case 
the language is that of complaint. Yet 
if these cases arc adduced by Schleus- 
ner as instances of contempt, much 
stronger language is justifiable in rrn- 
dcring the place in question. At 1 
Kings xxii. 27, where the prophet 
Micaiah is sent to prison (a very 
analogous passage), the contemptuous 
epithet Jelhir is used. One or the 
other our language requires, and 
our translators have obviously acted 
on a discrimiualing principle. In the 
same way they liave rendered nn»»n 
in Genesis, xii. 9> hy lliit one feUoie, 
the last word being supplied as if 
such an epithet expressed the contrast

Catechisms, as to cases of invmcible 
iynorance, a phrase extended even to 
pagaHtand tava(/ct. (Practical Evidence, 
1st edit. pp. 50, .51.) The language

(John V. 39.) J. R. has not observed 
that the text is strangely misunder-

as Seldcn represents them, to diecipli'i, 
but to thtJtirt (sec verses 13 and 40), 
a general expression, but certainly im- 
plying the opponents of Jesus at least, 
Qnandoquc bonus dormitat llomcrus 
(llur. Ars I'oet. 35U.) and Selden'a 
error shows the danger of quoting 
from memory.

loners to examine, but to believe as if 
they had not examined," his words 
are more specious than solid. They 
are those of an extreme liberal, not 
well alTected (I fear) to vital religion. 
If a person professes to belong to a 
community, and that community has 
its standards, he should either hold 
with them or leave it ; fur he has no 
right to remain within it and inveigh 
against it. 

With regard to the question of 
" good works," which your corres- 
pondent has introduced, though often 
professing to dislike controversy, there 
is a passage in the l^pistle to the Ephe- 
sians, which pronounces most clearly 
what they are, and what they are not. 
Thus, at chap. ii. verse 9, it is declared 
that salvation is "not of works, lest any 
man should boast," and at the next 
verse, that we are " created in Christ 
Jesus uuto good works, that we should 
walk in them." They are a test, but 
not a cause, unless a test be so called, 
in an inferior sense, which indeed 
there is great danger of overstraining. 
5. It is a matter of history that 
Luther had his dreams as well as 
Loyola i so ton liad Zuinglius, for he 
himself has related that a cogent 
theological argument was first made 
known to his mind in a dream. (See 
Basnage. vol ii. p. 1490, in answer to 
BosBuet, and Scott's Conlin. of Milner, 
vol. ii. p. 518.) John Newton is 
Bnother instance, in tlie last century, 
of minds being singularly acted upon 
by a dream ; nor is there anything un- 
reasonable in it ; for, since our facul- 
ties may be awake while the body 
sleeps, (as is evident from common 
dreams,) what is to prevent their being 
inBuenced from above, in that state, as 
well as in a waking one .' Of vitiom we 
have a memorable instance, also oc- 
jcurring in the lust century, in Colonel 
[Gardiner. De Keller, however, admits 
that willi respect to visions, " Les 
Saints peuvent s'y tromprr," referring 
to the article on Ste Catharine de 
. SieDue. (See his Table at the end of 
llrol. viii.) Here I roust observe, that 
the comparison of Luther nod Loyola 
i lit, both in the Kji/' ' ' 'al 

r and In tiie / "I 

iKuMM'. Holli Wfifor^ rcguiii IMU imiid 
of the one >■ -1 1 i|>uiral, and that of 
tic otlicr Hi visiuuuiy. This character 

of Loyola's mind attracted the for- 
midable notice of the inquisition, 
circumstance which I had mean 
to point out, while unaware tha 
Ranke had adverted to it. Ue wa 
arrested at Salamanca in 1527 aa 
fanatic and an alomhrado, (as one oC 
the sect of iUumviati,) and, though h« 
recovered his liberty in less than %J 
month, he was forbidden to qualify 
mortal or venial sins, till he had stu- 
died theology for four years. His 
second successor, Borgia, was also de- 
nounced as an alombrado, and only 
saved himself from the prisons of Vat- 
ladulid by quitting Spain when he* 
learned that his trial had commenced. 
His treatise on Christian works was 
twice placed in the Index Kxpurgato- 
rius, in 1559 and in 1583. (Liu- 
rente, p. 371-3; Ranke, part i. p. 
50, Kelly's translation). The chaptt^r 
of Llorente (the 30th) is entitled, "Of 
the prosecution of several saints and 
holy persons by the Inquisition." 

The text of Llorente, as it stands ia 
the ICnglish translation of 183C, con- 
tains a blunder, tnurini generu. It 
says that Francis dc Borgia " es- 
caped from the Inquisition, but he 
had the mortification of seeing his 
work twice placed in the Index, in 
1559 and in 1583." As he died ia 
1572, this latter date must be a mis- 
print, or the sentence involves what it 
called a bull. To the last edition of 
Miss Ldgeworth's "Irish Bulls," is 
appended a list of foreign blunders, and 
the clause just quoted, if not a mere 
typographical error, may be added ta, 
the number.* 

6. The quotation of Mosheim froial 
the writings of S. Eloi, which yourcor* j 
respondent censures, and not unjustly, J 
as a partial exhibition of facts, bad I

superintended in 1826. "Ilis^raerof

we see that Sismondi had reconsidarad 
the point, and given the mildeatverdict. 
But as J. R. has drawn attention to 
one false report, he will allow me to 
mention another. Constanline Ponce 
de Fuente, almoner and preacher to 
Charles V. of Spain, was confined in 
one of the foulest dungeons of the In- 
quisition, for nearly two years, on a 
charge of Luthcrani«m. " Constan. 
tine (says Llorente) fell sick, and died 
of a dysentery ; it was reported, when 
theo«/'/-fAi-/c'[of I ."itJO] was celebrated, 
that he had killed himself to avoid his 
punishment," (p. 2'2I ; and sec M' 
Cric, Rcf. in Spain, p. 466, for the 
particulars.) Hut thisdinappearsamid 
the variyus mmrlarilif, to borrow a 
word from your Correspondent'* vo- 
cabulary, which that tribunal practised 
on the largest possible scale, " This 
Ao/y ojfin, veiled by secrecy, unhesi- 
tatingly kept bark, falsified, concealed, 
or forged, the reports of trials, when

of their secretary and historian. (Pre-

how easily innocence might he sacri- 
ficed under such a system, and how 
hopeless it rendered even a posthu- 
mous reparation of character, acknow- 
ledgment actually sufTocatet fur the 
moment, while reading or reflecting 
on it. 

The omissions of Mosheim and Sis- 
mondi may be paralleled from the 
writings of the late Mr. Charles But- 
ler. In his Book of the Roman Catho- 
lic Church he gave a translation of 
the Creed of Pope Pius IV. omitting 
the last and most important clause. 
He slopped at the words, " to hold 
and profess the same whole and en- 
tire, with God's atsistaoce, to the end 
of my life. Ameo." (CandetD inte- 
gram et inviolatam, usque ad extre- 
mum vitie spatium constantissimc. 
Deo adjuvante, retincrc et confiteri.) 
But he left out the words which pro- 
mise that the believer will procure, 
as far as in him lies, that all who arc 
under him, or of whom he has the 
charge by virtne of hi* office, (ball 
hold, teach, and preach the •aroe."

idem N. spondeo, voveo, ac juro.) The 
■work appeared in 1825, whrri the 
EmanripatioH question was on foot ; 
and Buch n clause was a material part 
of the qae&tion, as it involved that ol' 
ascendancy, the desire of which the 
Romanists were anxious to disclaim. 
The character of Mr. Butler, as I have 
observed of Mosheim, should appa- 
rently exculpate him. One thing, 
however, is clear, that if so erudite a 
Romanist quotes imperfect documents, 
his assertions may prove to be rash in 
other respects. When DIanco White 
exposed the omission in the New 
Times newspaper of April 5, 1825, 
Mr. Butler gave no explanation of its 

Concerning Gregorio Lcti, I may 
add, that Llorente, while he pro- 
nounces his conversations of Charles 
V. with Carranza unauthentic, says, 
" it must be confessed that his recital 
is otherwise very exact" (p. 172), 
and praises liis historical judgment, 
on the submission of Philip to Paul IV. 
in 15,'>7- "Gregorio Lcti is right in 
attributing all the evils that have since 
arisen from the excessive authority 
which the priests have arrogated over 
laymen, to this conduct of Tliilip II." 
(p. 185.) 

However, the error* and defects 
which occur in Leti have gained for 
him the appellation of the Italian 
Varillas. a name which will be best 
understood hy citing the admissions of 
De Feller respecting the latter writer, 
of whose History of Heresies Dryden 
had projected a translation.

Few literary reputations liavc de- 
clined so quickly and to decidedly. 

Dc Feller, obliged as he is to cen- 
sure Varillas, apologises at every 
step for his faults, and the defective, 
ness of his eye-sight ought certainly 
to be allowed in the account ; but, 
when he speaks of Leti, his language 
is that of unmitigated censure. " Plus 
soigneux d'ccrire des fails extraordi- 
naires. que des choses vraics, il a rem- 
pli sea ouvragcs de mensonges, d'iuep- 
ties et d'inexactitudes." The anec- 
dote which he relates of Leti, a« 
saying, when asked if all in his life of 
Sixtus V. was true, — '■ Une chose 
bien imagince fait plus de plaiair que la 
verity destituec d'ornemens," — only 
shows that he classed himself among 
romance-writers, and St. Real and 
Vcrtot are no more.* But Sabatier 
allows Varillas no better character. 
" La fureur de s.icri6re I'essenticl il 
I'accessoire. Ic dcsir de bien dire, plu- 
t»lt que cclui de dire vrai, lui ont 
obtcnu Ic premier rang parmi les 
historiena infldeles." To come down 
to writers of our own time, as regards 
credibility in history, — Mr. Keightley, 
after observing that " il is impossible 
lo conceive any thing more absurd 
than the accounts given by the Irish 
historians and antiquaries of the an- 
cient policy and civilisation of their 
cfiuntiy," — adds, "Vet even Mr. 
Moore is not ashamed in repeal these 
fables." (Hist, of Kiiglan.l. i. 138, 
note.) Nor is Ihii an Lnglishnian'a 
jealousy or srcplicism, for Mr. Keight- 
ley is an Irishman.

by which the whole island ha- been laid 
desolate. The loss of life lias been com- 
puted at about I0,()0<) eoula, wbile the 
property destroyed amounts in value to 
about 120 millions of francs. 

To reliere the present want* of the un- 
fortunate inhabitants, the French govern- 
ment have agreed to advance Id loilliona 
in the shape of a loon, while the nation 
baa contributed between two nnd three 
millions in the form of subscription. The 
people of the neighbouring inlands have 
also largely contributed to tho osdintsnce 
of theij- unfortunate brethren, the little 
hospitable island uf Tobago alone having 
forwarded Sunn dollars fop that purpose. 
. To attempt a description of the liorrorn 
and devastation consequent on this awful 
catastrophe would be impossible ; the 
following extracts, however, from the re- 
pott of Messrs. L'Abbr licrlin and Jobity, 
appointed to convey pccuuiuty and other 
assistance from the Island of Trinidad, 
will afford some td^a of the painful situa- 
tion of the unfortunate inhabitants, whcir 
the rich and poor are now commingled in 
one mass of mii^ery.

(because he could not conquer in fair

now reduced to the level of the very

appear every doy at the place of distribu- 
tion, holding out their hands, each in his 
I urn, to receive the daily allowance of 
bread, salt-lish, rice, Stc. distributed to 
them. The siglit of such misery was, in- 
deed, heartrending. After a few minutes'

by his generous and disinterested de.

niaket tlie relief of human suffering its

introduced us to Mr. Jules Billecoq, the 
Director of the Interior, or Adjoint Go-

the Governor, then absent, received us in 
the kindest manner. The worthy Ahht

and which were carried in gallant

and 2nd ballalion of grenadiers, and a 
company uf the 43rd, together with 
50 marines and 4<X) seamen, detached 
by the Admiral under the command of 
Captain George Grey of the Boyne. 
The French opened n severe fire upon

was, however. clTcctually silenced by 
Lord Garlics in the VVinchclsea. who

In the attack the soldiers were di- 
rected not to fire, but to trust solely 
to the bayonet, while the seamen, 
commanded by Captains Nugent and 
Faulkner, were directed to use their 
pikes and swords ; which orders were 
strictly obeyed. 

The march began at 5 o'clock on 
the morning of the 12tb, and such 
was the simaltancousncss of the ma- 
noeuvres and impetuosity of the 
attack that Fort Fleur d'Epee, Hog 
Island, and Kort Louis were captured 
with the trifling loss of 54 English 
killed and wounded, while the loss of 
the French amounted to 250. 

In this attack the conduct of a brave 
seaman of the Boyne was remarkable. 
Having expressed a wish he might 
have an opportunity of lowering the 
French flag and hoisting the British, 
and being a remarkably fine fellow, he 
•was appointed to carry the union flag 
for that purpose ; accordingly it was 
wrapped in folds around him, and he 
was to defend it as w^ell as he could. 
When he approached the fort the first 
object which attracted his notice was 
the flag stafl', and, regardless of every 
danger, he rushed forward pike in 
hand, and having once got into the 
fart auay he ran to the desired spot, 
" the height of his ambition ;" be had 
already struck the tri-coloured flag, 
and was in the act of disengaging 
himself from the wrapper in order to 
hoist the British ensign iu its stead, 
when some soldier* coming suddenly 
round the corner of a building, and 
taking him for one of the enemy, in 
an instant attacked him, and he fell 
severely wounded before they dis- 
covered their mistake ; he, however, 
afterwards recovered. 

Captain Kimlkncr, whoso eminently 
distinguished himself in ttie capture of 
Fort Louis at Martinique, also had 
a narrow escape on this occasion. 
Having led his roen on to the assault 
with his asual (gallantry, he n'as en- 
countered by a French iiiTi< f i . v.linni 
he instantly »lruck at ^^

his hand, was in the act of plunging 
It through his body, when, fortunately, 
a seaman belonging to the Boync, 
seeing the danger his gallant leader 
was in, with his pike pinned the 
Captain's .idversary to the earth. 

On the 13lh, the 43d regiment were 
landed to garrison Fort Prince of 
Wales (lately " Fleur d'Epee") the 
tower of Point h Pitrc, (the capital of 
that part of Guadaloupc, called Grand 
Terre,) and the other fortified posts in 
the vicinity. 

On the 14lh, at twelve o'clock, the 
fleet sailed for the other side of the 
Bay, and in the afternoon landed the 
grenadiers and light infantry under 
Prince Edward, at a village called 
Petit- Bourg, where many of the prin- 
cipal people of the Island were as- 
sembled, and received H. R. H. and 
the Commander-in-Chief, with the 
greatest demonstrations of joy. A party 
of sailors from the Quebec also landed 
under the command of Captain Rogers. 

On the followiug nioining the Ge- 
neral landed at St. Mary's, where he 
found Colonel Coote with the 1st bat- 
talion of light inlantry. 

On the I8th, at daybreak, the Ge- 
neral stormed the battery of U'Anet. 
every man being either killed, wounded, 
or taken, while not one man was even 
hurt on the part of the British. 

On the night of the l"ththe enemy, 
in the town of Bu^sc Terre, tet fire to 
it, destroying much valuable property, 

At one o'clock on the morning of 
the 20tli, the Commander-in-Chief, 
at the head of his troops, advanced to 
attack a formidable chain of batteries 
on the heights of " Palmiste," extend- 
ing abuut a league, and which were 
the principal defences of the enemy. 
The grenailiei'g were commanded by 
Prince Edword; the light infantry by 
Colonel Cootc. At five in the morn- 
ing the attack commenced by the light 
infaiitiy advancing to the assault of 
the highest and luocit furrnidalilc bat- 
tery, which, though wtll .i ■ • i- i iiy

Hecapture of Guadahupe by tht French.

which places were literally so taken,) 
as justly liable to forfeit and confisca- 

About this period, many of the West 
India traders bad carried on an illicit 
traffic to (he French Islands before they 
were captured ; and, in consequence of 
it, had at the time of the capture im- 
mense sums still due to them. Appre- 
hending therefore the payment of the 
contribution (in lieu of contiscalion.) 
night retard or even endanger the 
discharge of their own debts, they 
joined heartily in every scheme for 
defeating this just and prior claim. 
Thfy enroKraged the Frrnrh in llieii' 
opponiliim, Ihfy minrfproufnlrd the fad t 
to Enj/h«J, tliey otteiupted to blight 
the laurels of the commanders, and 
became clamorous against the cruelly 
of plunder, and illegality and impolicy

" Hii lints on the Rose are pretty and 

The rose, the sweetly blooming rose, 

Ere from the tree 'tis torn, 
Is like the charm which beauty shews 

In life's exulting mom.

The rosebud withering lies ; 
So, long ere life's pnle eve comes On, 

The flower of beauty dies.

The beauties of the mind. 

" The well-known lines on Poverty, and 
on Mrs. Crewe, are of a higher order. 
But all these things are trifles which 
might be produced by any pen, and which 
can be given only as instances of the oc- 
casional lightness of a great and powerful 
mind. Foi's triumphs are all parlia- 
mentary. But Ilia conversMtion when he 
was ' i" the vein," is always spoken of as 
leaving us only to regret that so Utile of

to be made on the skill of the French in

Fojc took up a cluster of grapes ond pre- 
sented it to her. with the motto, ' Je plais 
jusqu'a livrcsfiC;' bis superiority was »c. 
knowlcdged by acclamation. Burke was 
contending, in his usual authoritative 
manner, for the possibility of raising 
It*ly to her former rank, and instanced 
that several nations wliich had smik under

doubly sorry that we cannot extract 
the remarks which Dr. Croly has 
made on the subject of lir/orm . re- 
marks based on the most undeulable 
and the most neglected truth*, and 
which we arc grateful to Dr. Croly 
(or having brought forward and en- 
forced ; having ourselves been long 
convinced that the errors, the disap- 
pointments, the misfortuoes, the want 
of success, in the important measures 
of later days, have been owing to this, 
the main material being deficient iu 
the political edifice. Yet it was not 
unseen by an acute statesman of the 
last age. " The shopkecpcis (said 
Mr. Wyndham) are calling out for 
Keform — let them first reform them- 
selves." But to return to our biogra- 
phical memoir. 

" Erskine, like many other character* 
of pecnliar liveliness, had a morbid teui " 
bilily to the circumstances of the momeal) 
which sometimes strongly repelled his '

a whisper, even among the miicd mtilli-

scarcely had the Romaoa tiiially departed, 
ere the kingdoms with British namef. go- 
Tcroed by princes also having British 
names, and who appealed to codes of an- 
cient Britifk laws, arose, and an energetic, 
imaginative, but unciviliird people held 
possession of the land, until a rude but 
more energetic race chased them away.'' 

P. 1$7. On the Nonnan Conquest, 
the following just observation is 
made : — 

" Whatever were the popular rights, 
whatever were the rights conceded to wo- 
men by Saxon jurisprudence, and they 
were important, the turbulence, the law- 
lessness, of this latter (leriod rendered 
them well nigh nugatory. The right of 
the strong hand was the only law recog- 
nised by the Leofrics, the .\lgars, the 
Godwins of that day, and us vainly might 
the wife and mother of kings, as the poor 
tiller of the ground, demand justice or 
seek redress from tho<e whose will was 
the whole law. Oppressive and cruel 
were the resalts of the Norman conqncst, 
that just retribution, as the Norman 
chroniclers believed it, on England for 
the cruel massacre of the peaceful Danes ; 
still, at the distance of about eight cen- 
turies, that rouquest may be viewed at a 
severe but necessary remedy. To (he 
land, after a period of fierce slni(;gle. it 
' brought rest and civilization. Its elfect 
on the condition of women we shall trace 
in the next chapter." 

P. 320. " Well nigh crushed down by 
Nomian power, Snxon energy at length 
I aroused itself after a slumber of renliirirs, 
I and MOW prepared to break the bonds 
, which a more powerful foeman had im- 
posed. A less energetic rucc would 
nave slumbered on in hopeless bondage

tain a pernmnrnt settlement in England, 
that compelled t'erJic year after ye^ir, and 
battle after battle, to bold on until his 
conquest over (he united British ehicriiiiiiii 
was achieved, still dwelt in the breast of 
the rude bat degraded Saxon. And thus

The entire chapter (vii.) on the con| 
vent life is very well composed, ann 
presents a very agreeable picture of 
Ihe life which maiden meditation so 
loved to lead. The tables In the re- 
fectory seem to have been well served, 
and the figs, raisins, almonds, and ric 
which the nnns claimed during Lent 
was a very lady-like fare. And it apS 
pears that through the postern -door*^ 
while the aged females were taking 
their meridian or noon tide sleep, the 
younger nuus would occasionally glide 
to catch a glimpse of the guiles of the 
woild, and endanger the otherwise . 
unbroken tranquillity of their hearts 
Miss Lawrence says on this head,- 
"The injunction, therefore, of Dean_ 
Kentwode to the convent of St. Helen, 
Bishopgate, within the city, that' some 
sadde woman and discrete, honestc 
and wel-nnmed, for shuttyng the

was not unneedful." We shall loou 
forward with pleasure to the continual 
tion of this work.

Sacrament* — of Rcgenemt ion — of Jus- 
lifiratiun — imputed Kighteou&aess — 
frward according to works by the 
Kvangclical clergy, is considered, and 
their great and leading errors on these 
sybjects pointed out. The opinions of 
the Onfoid writers and the Tracts for 
the Times are ably and dispassionately 
defended. The case of the Dissenters, 
as regards their spiritaal situation, 
and the daty of Churchmen towards 
them, ia considered ; and other im- 
portant subjects are brought in such a 
manner under fair and open discus- 
sion, the arguments being briefly but 
ably handled, so that a sufficient know- 
ledge of tlicm will be obtnined by the 
readers of the volume, and Mr.Gresle J' 's 
opinion, with its supporting argu- 
ments, fully uoderst'iod. How the 
Evangelical clergy will meet the state- 
ments that are made in it we are cu> 
rtoas to see ; for Mr. Gre»lcy's exposi- 
tion of their doctrines, and confutatiou 
of ihem, we consider to be among the 
mo>t valuable points in the work. 
We are sure they must get a belter 
advocate than Mr. Flavell,* but wc 
doubt whether they will liod any one 
at all more successful. In making 
one or two short extracts from difFcr- 
rot parts, wc arc aware that we are 
leaving behind all the spirit, the cha- 
racter, and clearness of the composi- 
tion ; but how are we to transfer it to 
our pages ? and why should we ? The 
book is itself easily attainable, and 
sbouM be read in the entire and un- 
broken form in which it is composed.

P. 82. To the story of the clergy- 
man who preached at the ArchdeacoD'a 
Meeting against IheTracts of the Times, 
willioiit liavini/ Tfod them, we could 
bring a similar instance within our 
own knowledge. When certain of the 
clergy talk against the Trarta of tht 
TVmej they really mean certain extractM 
and pafSOi/e> in the Cltri»lian Obterver. 

P. 13!), " The school-room lecture in- 
volves a departure from tbe spirit and, as 
I conceive, the letter of church discipline." 

P. i'86. " The EvnngeUcals assert that 
Church principles are reviving under their 
auspices. If the all but accomplished 
triumph of dissent and radicalism in 
Evaii|;eliL-sl times be a proof of llie revival 
of Church principles, the EvaugelicaU 
may be right, fur it was to this state that 
England was reduced." 

P. ^98. " Nothing shall induce me to 
retract my fixed opinion that the tract 
writers (taking their writing* as s whole) 
are the ablest and truest nmintainers 
which our Church has had for many years. 
They hove raised the tone of feeling in 
the Church aud country, and have revived 
principles and doctrines respecting the 
Church, for which I think thot even you, 
Mr. Fluvell, will acknowledge they have 
done good service.'* 

P. :tn4. " It has often been my lot to 
bear Evangelical preachers, and I never 
yet heard one of Ihem preach the doctrine 
of reward iiccording to works, very seldom 
that of the last judgment, at least as it l( 
revealed in Scripture, and as to the im- 
portant doctrine of the baptism for the 
remission of sins, and ■ the Holy Catholic 
Church,' I don't rrnirmber to have ever 
beard them allude to lliem." 

P. :i(M. "The charge of Popery and 
disaffection to the Church is the most 
unjust, I might add the most impudent, 
thing imaginable in men who are notori- 
onsly guilty of the most unaccountable 
deviations trom both the letter and spirit 
of the Church service, and approximation 
to the habit of Dissenters. What would 
be said of a clergj-man who introduced 
into his service hymns taken from the 
breviary ? aud yet the Evangelists use 
without scruple the composition* of Dis>

interest in the subject, and feelings of 
affection and respect to the tneroory 
of him whose character it records, and 
some of whose writings it has pre- 
served. Prefixed to the remains of 
the author is a sermon by the Editor, 
in which will be found such an ac- 
count of the life and character of his 
ileccased friend, as will enchain atten- 
tion and awake emotions of the ten- 
derest kind in every reader's heart. 
This affectionate tribute by the Bishop 
n( New Jersey, to the memory of him 
whom be calls " a true Catholic 
churchman in his life and in his 
death," is followed by the sermons of 
Mr. \Vin»low, and by some poetical 
pieces. The foiraer are in our opi- 
nion correct in doctrine, speaking the 
authentic voice of the Church on tbc 
points of Chiistian belief and duty. 
The poeius are the proiluctions of an 
accomplished mind, and arc riegnnlly

Are eloquently dumb.

Oh I for those dear wild flowers.

To where kind nature hath made her bon\e, 
In bowers ao green and fresh- 
But is not nature here ? 

From these troubled scenes look up and

Pursue his bright career. 

Or where the night dews fall.

Flitting o'er that clear expanse, 

Her own broad starlit hall.

My liri-Boak. By W. C. Cotton, .rf.iV. 
WITH some curtailments an>l alter- 
ations this might be made a very de- 
lightful and instructive volume. It is 
written with all the zeal of an ama- 
teur, with poetic taste and feeling, 
onJ in a tiul)- Chriitian sjiiiit, but »>■ 
the tubjcct as well as Ihe bouk have 
been very succcstfully discoursed on 
in a laic number of the Quarterly Re- 

other Bee books, bow strenuously the 
cottagers arc exhorted to study hives 
and their inmates, and ^'hat golden 
treasures are promised to their in- 
dustry. Indeed a calculation men- 
tioned in the Quarterly Review ex- 
tends to several thousand pounds 
from a certain number of hives. Now 
in the couutry in which we live there 
is no encouragement of this sort lirld 
out to the apiarian cultivator for the 
profits of his " Htmhephtrded florlc ; " 
for there is great difficulty in finding 
sale fur the honey, even at the low 
price of sixpence in the pound, and it 
13 often brought back from the markets 
and towns unsold, and used up at 
home. The wax indeed is a more

the great proportion of talent and 
science engaged in the investigation 
of its nature and properties, and in 
the endeavour to connect its unknown 
powers with those with which we are 
already acquainted. These investiga- 
tions have nssumcd a scientific cha- 
racter, and are pursued according to 
the most approved methods of philoso- 
phy ; while the natural powers which 
the art itself is able to call forth and 
command, are applied most success- 
fully to the treatment of disease, both 
as auxiliaries to the established plans 
of treatment, and as successful where 
they have failed. The art itself is still 
in its infancy, but is daily under pa- 
tient and persevering investigation, 
unfolding more and more of ita cha- 
racter and properties, exhibiting new 
and interesting phenomena, and offer- 
ing the most flattering prospects of re- 
moving disease that has resisted all other 
methods of cure, and of alleviating the 
suffering and agony that arc attendant 
on the operations of surgery. As we 
have said, the art is in its infancy ; — 
yet it has already proved its claims, both 
on the belief and the gratitude of man- 
kind. I'he stubborn and dreadful dis- 
ease of epilepsy has been removed by 
it — nervous diseases of the brain and 
the heart, of the most dangerous kind, 
have been arrested in their fatal pro- 
grcss — amputations have been per- 
formed, even of entire limbs, without the 
patient being conscious of the opera- 
tion, or in any degree affected by it — it 
has been appi ied beneficinlly in the treat- 
ment of insanity, and the tranquilliza> 
tion of the disordered mind — It is in 
the hands of men of singularly active 
minds, of habits of philosophical inves- 
tigation, and extensive acquirements — 
its evidences are fairly and openly 
Buhraittcd to the most educatea and 
enlightened part of the public — it is 
altogether separated from the lower 
and obscure provinces of quackery and 
deceit — it is the subject of the most 
rigorou* investigation both in public 
and private, in conversation, in open 
debate, in pamphlets and reviews — it 
has been adopted, nflcr examination, 
by a corifiiicrable portion rf the medi- 
cal World, »nd the ciicle of its teacher* 
and believers is steadily extending

of Liverpool, in whose name is pab- 
' shed a sermon, called " SatanieAgencj/ 
id Mfsmerism." This we have had 
e roisrortune of reading. As far as 
e can recollect the reasoning runs in 
is manner. 1. There are fallen 
gels ; these are permitted to be 
tempters to fallen roan ; they appear 
in the shape of wizards, enchanters, 
and act through witchcraft. Such is 
the testimony of the Old Testament, 
jind of the gospel ; and, further, the 
levil still retains his ancient power 
•nd domination. Among the Arabs, 
for instance, he appears acting in the 
'* Sin of Witchcraft ; " he also appears 
In the Mystery of iniquity, the Church 
if Rome ; and he appears "with powers, 
and doing signs, and mingling lying 
wonders." We must thcrrfore be pre- 
lared to be assailed by power working 
ith men who dwell with familiar 
irits. Mesmerism is a power — is 
It real or supernatural power, or 
Vaud ? The preacher must judge by 
.earsay on this point, not caring to 
'lie a pre-sent witness himself. Grant 
that it is rral, then let the teachers of 
it give us the science in a scientific 
manner, opening to us the law, and 
stating the uniform action of the pro- 
lertics, nol confining thenuelves to ejr- 
'fimen/j in a comer, upon tei-vanl girls 
red for the jiHrjioie. Let us have the 
law of the science, if it he a science ; 
and if it be not n science then wliat is 
it } It is cither a falsehood or a su- 
pernatural thing. The supernatural 
thing is the power over the flesh of 
man's body; but who do we read of 
■a having taken possession of man's 
flesh ? — the devil. Therefore, says the 
preacher, I suspect this pretended sci- 
ence is of the devil, and this suspicion 
is strengthened and supported by Lord 
Shrewsbury's cases, becauiic they he- 
long " to the Mystery of liiii|uity," 
and also because the jihilotofihic advo- 
cates and teachers of the pseudo-sci- 
ence are covetous men, like linluain, 
and seldom go to church. Therefore 
to lay hold of them is an exploit 
worth of the devil. Lastly, the mem- 
bers of the medical piofcssion arc the 
last persons fit to ^udge of the tiuth 
f this work, if tt i« suprriitturiil, 
'hitavjit the devil cannot be found by 
the knife that divides the joiutu, or by 
he medicine which divides the pores, 
^hrrcfurc tlic preacher advises all me- 

dical men " to tah God Almighty to 
ihoip them Me sy)tri7«o/ world." To 
conclude, he soys, let no Christians 
go to such cnhibitions, for they qiay 
be of the devil in more ways than 
one. Nature acli uniformly, the devil 
rapricioiialy ; and if this art works ra- 
pririoHily, then (here is some mis- 
chievous agent at work ; besides, " no 
science can save a soul." Clasp your 
bible, and go nol after idle vanities. 
Now to, &c. Such is the discourse , 
of the Rev. Mr. Hugh Mac Neile, of ' 
Liverpool. Fortunately this piece of I 
foolery fell into the hands of a person 
styling himself a beneficed clergy- 
man, and who we believe is the Rev, . 
G. Saodhy, of Suffolk ; and who an- 
swered it in the article, the name ut 
which wc have prefixed to these ob- 
servations. It was lamcntatily neces- 
sary that some notice should be taken , 
of this absurd discourse, for not only j 
had thousands of copies been bought | 
by weak and fanatic persons, but per- 
sons had beeu absolutely deterred from 
adopting or witnessing the curative 
effects of Mesmerism, through scruples 
of conscience raised by this contempti- 
ble piece of sacred declamation. Mr. 
Sandby's pamphlet is written through- 
out in that calm and temperate man- 
ner that became a person investigating ' 
a subject of philosophy. The facts 
adduced are judiciously selected — the 
reasonings arc logically stated — thftJ 
present state of the mesmeric science^ 
is fairly represented, and Mr. Mac 
Neile's absurdities are exposed and 
his flimsy reasoning irresistibly con< 
futed. At p. 11 Mr. .Sandby bns an-| 
swercd liis demand, " ihat the latut 
of this science be statrd cleaily and inl 
a scientific manner ; " which, in other | 
words, signifies : " While you are em- 
ployed in making such eiperiments ntJ 
may hereafter eiiiible you to cumprc<| 
hend aiid unfold the laws to whichf 
they are subject, ynu must explain 
these laws (•> iite lieloie 1 btlicTc in

Mr. Mac Neile's »ensiblc demanilj

on those of the virtuous and venerable

WotilJ not those respected praclieers 
of flrimostir medicine inform hlra, of 
tl: y'ltii of castor- oil, of the 

Ofi' -luc of the pilula compo- 

>it«, and of the disappointment they 
endured, hour after hour, while eagerly 
waiting the expected operation of the 
colocyolhine aperients; but Mr. Sand- 
by's remarks on this head, which 
coromence at p. 12, are so just, :o 
fall, and so decisive, that they require 
no mssistance from any other hand. 

" The nature of tleclneili/ (be says) is 
not (0 prrfeclly known that a law could 
b« laid down, by gener&l reasoning, so es 
to forctdl of a certainty the manner in 
vhich electrified bodies would act in any 
porltion in which they might be respect- 
(vtly placed. Do wc therefore say that 
there i» no uniformity? or, as Mr. Mac 
Ncile might say, that there is no elec- 
tricity, or, rather, that the whole is deter- 
mined by the accidental caprices of Satan ? 
No I we answer that the distance of the 
pohlivt and ntgalire bodic* Ining known, 
and no disagreement arising from other 
or accidental causes, their uniformity of 
action is certain; but we add, that, as 
phlloaopbers could not determine a just 
tlicury of all this from the physical prin- 
ciples of electricity, it was necessary to 
proceed by observation, and comparison 
of phenomena, before the law of variu- 
tiou could be established ; and so it is 
animal magnetism, it will be by ob- 
ation, by induction of various and nu- 

_ ous particulars, as exhibited in indi- 
ridiuUs of various constitutions and habits, 
that any approach to a consistent theory 
of action can be established. All tbii 
will n'<iuire much time and many and 
tedious experiments, &c." 

Mr. Saodby lastly brings forward a 
positive case of cure in his own family 
by Mesmerism, after all the ordinary 
appliaiices of medicine had failed, and 
hope itself was all but gone ; ood in 
this case, instead of seeing any marks 
oC " diabolical capriciousness,'' it 
acted " by a gradual, steady, and pro- 
gressive improvement, attended by cir- 
camatsncrs of iclief which no lan- 
guage can express." To this we 
should add that Mr. Mac Neile's ar- 
gument of capriciousness appears to 
U» to be altogether wrong. When mcdi- 
ciru led to the removal of dis- 

ca, -lum act with uoiformity. 

nay, they require constantly to be mo- 
dified, mixed, or changed ; but all this 
time the disease may be steadily dimi- 
nishing, and symptoms of health more 
and more appearing. The end may be 
obtained, though by a perpetual change 
and variety in the means; so the cores 
performed by Mesmerism may be cer- 
tain, though the effects of mesmeric 
application may vary in power from 
day to day, according to the bodily 
constitution of the patient, or of the 
operator — according to the state of 
the mental faculties at the time, and 
of the nervous system — according to 
the dry or moist nature of the weather, 
and so on ; but, if the purpose or end 
in view is generally obtained, then 
the uncertainty of the mean8|(miscalled 
capricioutneM) is not to be regarded, 
being a defect which necessarily be- 
longs to the application of all art that, 
like medicine, is founded on experi- 
ment and observation. We now con- 
sider Mr. Mac Neile's claim to the 
attention of the public to be altogether 
destroyed. He may go on in his owo 
chapel alarming his congregation, 
whenever a mesmeric physician arrives 
in Liverpool, by crying out from the 

' By the pricking of my thumbs 
Something wicked this way comes ;' 

but the sensible portion of mankind 
will look for something better than vi- 
tuperation, declamation, illogical rea- 
soning, and interpretations of scripture 
misunderstood and misapplied.

By S. C. Loudon, ji/i. 732. 
WE have read this volume with 
rare, and pronounce it to be executed 
in such a manner as does credit to the 
writer's knowledge and industry, and 
we are sure it will be of the greatest 
utility to all who, possessing gardens, 
have them cultivated under their own 
management and inspection. The noble 
and the rich have it in their power to 
engage gardeners of great skill and good 
education who relieve them of all 
trouble but that of eating the fruiu 
and inhaling the odours of the flowers ; 
but the person of small fortune, pos- 
sessing alike with the rich man a love 
of nature and of cuUiYBttoo, yet oot

being able, on accuunt of (lie cipenev, 
to place liis land in the lianils of a 
scientific gardener, he must cither cul- 
tivate it according to hi»own roofinvd 
knowledge, or entrust it to the liand« 
of those who are little better than 
labourers of the field, and under whom) 
DO success could be obtained. Tu 
give, therefore, instruction to the 
ignorant in a commodious form and 
intelligible language, has been the in- 
tention of the author of this volume ; 
and we certainly c.innot point out any 
part of his subject which is not treated 
with the fullness it requires, and the 
correctness that proceeds from a long 
and intimate acquaintance with every 
branch of horticulture. To the country 
clergyman and to the retired tradesman 
this volume is peculiarly adapted, and 
ivith this book on their table they will 
be able so to direct the operations of a 
common labouring gardener, as to cul- 
tivate their grounds with satisfaction 
and success. The work is divided 
into different parts and sections, each 
embracing a portion of the general 
subject. The plants thenuclves are 
named and classified. The soils, 
manure, and atmosphere, suited to 
their growth and maintenance arc 
enumerated, as welt as the diseases and 
accidents to which they are liable, and 
the insects and animals that infest 
and injure them. The proper imple- 
ments, utensils, and structures of hor- 
ticulture are mentioned, and the best 
mode of construction is pointed out. 
Thusbyatlentionto these points, which 
no inexperienced person could be able 
of himself to effect, many mistakes will 
be avoided, disappointment obviated, 
and money will not be uselessly epent. 
The different methods of piupagation 
by seed, cuttings, layers, budding, and 
I grafting, are given in the succeeding 
^ parts ; the proper mode of cropping, 
vitli the whole rotation of crops, in 
'detailed; the rullurc of fruiti^ under 
I glass as well as in the open burden, 
^with the different methods of forcing, 
and copious catalogues of the proper 
fruits and culinary vegetables which

the whole cycle of information on that 

^(ubjcct; in the meantime an excellent 

|»llb>tittttc for tli« latt<r will be fvtind 

in Mrs. London's Companion to the 
Ladiet' I'lowci tiarden. In conclusion 
wc may observe that all the latest dis- 
coveries ill agricultural chemistry have 
been applied in this work to the sub- 
ject of gardening, and the introduction 
of all the newest fruits and vegetables 
noticed. Satisfied of the utility of the 
present volume we now look forward 
to the next with eager expectation, as 
Pomona and Flora ought always to be 
companions, and fruits and Bowers 
should lend a charm and lustre to each 
other, as Van Huysum and all great 
flower painters afford us the example 
in their works. 

On the Laying out, Plantiny. and Ma- 
naging Cemeterifi, Ifc. By J. C. 

THIS very useful and well-written 
treatise may be considered as being 
divided under two heads, — the useful, 
the ornamental. The former showing 
the best means of preventing the evil 
consequences that arise from the com- 
mon methods of burial, in the over- 
ciowded state of churchyards and 
cemeteries, the want of attention to 
ilrainagc, and other causes which en- 
danger the health and safety of the 
living ; the second, which comes under 
the province of landscape gardening, 
affording information for the ornament 
and decoration of large public burial 
grounds and churchyards, agreeably 
to good taste and to the preservation 
(if the prupcr and peculiar character 
of the places. On both these points 
Mr. Loudon has given much valuable 
instruction, and such as we trust will 
awaken the public attention; for, 
though certainly much has been done 
in discouraging interments in churches 
and recommending the (election ufbu« 
rial grounds away from ihe hraria

The papers contained in this first 
publication of the Society, are seven, 
namely. — 

1. An opening Address, by E. J. 
WillsoD, F.S.A. 

2. The Geology of Lincoln ; by the 
late Mr. William Bedford. 

3. The Malnndry Hospital for 
Lepers ; by W. D. Cookson, M.D. 

4. Leprosy of the Middle Ages ; by 
the same. 

5. Temple Bruer, and its Knights ; 
by the Rev. George Oliver, D.U. 

6. The advantage of recording the 
discovery of Local Antiquities ; by W. 
A. Nicholson, F.R.I. A. 

7. Tattcrshall Castle; by the same. 

The most elaborate and original pa- 
pers appear to be those by Or. Cook- 
Eon. and they will be found generally 
interesting in illustration of a subject 
which attaches itself to innumerable 
other sites throughout the country. 

Of the ruins at Temple Bruer, 
■where was one of the Round Churches, 
B plan is given : the roof of the church 
was supported upon eight columns, as 
at Cambridge (see the plan accompa- 
nying Mr. Essex's paper on Round 
Churches, in the Arch«ologia, vol. vl. 
p. 173.) 

Four plates accompany Dr. Oliver's 
account of Tattcrshall Castle. We 
cannot •oy, however, that we think 
the engraving?, on the whole, particu- 
larly attractive ; and, without in any 
degree suggesting the sacrifice of uti- 
lity to decoration in this particular, we 
shall be glad to find improvement in 
the Society's next work.

vicw 'if the 

cellent ; indeed as a specimen of typo- 
graphy it may be said to be almost 
unrivalled. It is printed throughout 
in red and black ; all the capitals and 
first letters are in red, and the masical 
lines as well ; the form of the capital 
letters also is very ornamental. Each 
page is surrounded by a wood-cut 
border of very elegant design, printed in 
black, the effect of which is at once 
striking, and, from the contrast which 
it presents, very pleasing to the eye. 

The volume Contains the whole mu- 
sical service in plaiii-taoc, as gene- 
rally used in the<lifferent cathedrals at 
the present time, and in addition some 
other p.irts of the musical notation, 
which, although not all generally 
adopted, arc nevertheless intrrcsling 
in an antiquarian point of view. This 
musical service is taken from two 
works, (with the necessary alterations 
in order to adapt it to our present 
ritual,) the fir6t of which appeared in 
1544. under the authority of Henry 
Vin. entitled, " An Kxhortacioii unto 
I'laier thought mete by the Kynges 
Majestic and his Clergie to be read. 
Also a Litanr with Suffrages, to be 
snyd or siliig.'T. Derlhelet, 1544." To 
this l,ilany the musical service pub- 
lished in the present volume, and 
which is still Used in our cathedrals, 
was set. The second of these works 
was published in 1550, shortly after 
the issue of the first service-book of 
Edward VI. containing a manual of 
plain-tune for the performance of 
matins, even-song, the office of the 
Holy Communion, and the Burial of 
the Dead, compiled by John Mar- 
bcchc, for the use of the chapel roynl, 
ond entitled, " The Book of Coaimnn 
I'raier noted." 

The preface to the present work is 
drawn up by the editor, Mr. William 
Dvcc, in a very ingenious manner, .md 
displays much research and informa- 
tion. Mr. Dyce has givtn a very good

which \it» been rarioasl^ interpreted by 

different French tntiquiries. The word 
F.iDEo is apparently the name of a local 
deity associated with Jupiter, and it i<< 
remarkable that three altars have been 
found dedicated to Jupiter Dolichenus, 
which name has some apparent connection 
with the word dolvckn!'. As, however, 
we are unable to elucidate the matter, we 
will refer the curious antiquary to Mr. 
Smith's own description, in which he haa 
discussed at length this subject, as well 
as those of his other plates. The having 
been at the pains to make theae etchings 
with his own hands, is characteristic of 
his usual eeal and perseverance, and the 
antiquarian world may well wi«h that they 
poueaaed more members equally active 
with Mr. Roach Smith.

Literary and Scientific Irdelligence, 


y«ii<> 22. One of the noblest meetings 
CTCr known in Cheltenham wait held on 
the occasion of the opening of the new 
Proprietory College. Three years hnve 
not elapsed since it was projected, nnd 
only two since tlie school was opened. 
There were 244 boye present, and most of 
the clergy of the town ami neighbourhood. 
The college is an elegant Gothic building, 
250 feet in len^h, with a tower HO feet 
in height, and has a noble appearance. 
The great boll is capable of contaiaing 
1500 persons. It was designed by 
Mr. Wilson, of Bath, and erected by Mr. 
Davis, of Frome. The Rer. Francis 
Close, M.A. look the chair, and addressed 
the assembly in a very cfTcctivc speech. 
The Head Master, the Rev. Ur. Phillips, 
introduced the Examiners, the Rev. Mr. 
HodsoD, Fellow of Trinity College, Cam- 
bridge, and the Rev. Mr. Mitrhcll, of 
Oxford. The reverend gentlemen passed 
the highest encomiums upon the boys for 
their proficiency in the classics, mathe- 
matics, and general literature, and ex- 
pressed themselves on the certainty of 
their success in the Universities, whither 
they were proceeding. From the report 
it appeared that the receipts of the year 
had been 3,4.39/. covering all current ex- 
penses, and leaving a sur|)lus of 300/. 

already pos,scsscs a valuable collection of 
books, to which large additions ore shout 
to be made ; and full ajiparatus for the 
illustration of the lectures in Chemistry, 
and all the branches of Natural Philoso- 
phy, is to be selected in England by t]ie 
Professors in those departments. 


The following appointments have been 
made in this new Canadian University. 
The Rev. Dr. John M'Caul, late Princi- 
pal of Upper Canada college, Vice-Presi- 
dent of the University (the Bishop of 
Toronto being President by the royal

The Annual Meeting of this influential 
Society has been held this year at Derby. 
The pavilion, in which the dinner of the 
Members took place on Thursday, Jnly 
13, was of capacity to contain 2000 jier- 
•ons. Alargenumber of implements, bad 
arrived on Tuesday, when a preliminary 
trial of some of them took place on 
some land at Mickleover, three miles 
from the town. In the evening of that 
day, the council of the society dined 
with the Mayor at the Royal Hotel. 
Among the company were Mr. W. Miles, 
M.P. (Steward of the Implement deport- 
ment), and Sir Chas. Morgan, Bart. On 
Wednesday the Judges awarded the prizes, 
and the Council of the Society held their 
public dinner in the County Hall. On 
Tliunday the cattle and implement yards 
were opened to the public, and the grand 
dinner took place in the Pavillion at 4 


The sale of the library of the laic John 
Sidney Hawkins, esq. F.S.A. took place 
on the 8th May, and eight following days, 
at Fletcher's Rooms, Piccadilly. The 
collection was not especially rich in fine 
or rare books, but was essentially a learned 
library, and included some very curious 
articles, both printed and manuscript- 
Mr. Hawkins seemed to have a most sin- 
gular fancy for collecting several copies 
of works where the author or the subject 
engaged his interest, even if they were of 
the some edition. Of his own edition of 
Ignoramus there was an unsold remainder 
of twenly-scvpu copies, and of his E'say 
on the Origin and Progress of Gothic Ar 
chitecture, no fewer than two hundre'

isting at UroouibifAd Hall. This docn- 
mcnt (in uianuschpl) accompanied the 
collection, nliich the descKber separates 
into four principal dirisiooa — the ftrat 
containing all that immediately relates to 
the town of Sheffield, and the ilistrict of 
Hallamshire. These of course, to persona 
resident in this town, formed the moat 
inl«reiling part of the collection, and 
have, as might be expected, yielded more 
than their essence during the proceas of 
their examination by Mr. Hunter, who, 
however, after all has hardly been indebted 
to them exactly to the extent implied by 
the terms " a great portion of bis Hallam- 
shire" in the preoeding quotation. The 
second division contains all that relates to 
Bradficld, and some of the places in the 
neighbourhood of Broomhead Hall. The 
latter, a mansion built some years sgo, 
situate near the Moors, at the bead of the 
Yewden Vale, overlooking the ancient 
residence of " Moor of Moor Hall," and 
confronting the still more conspicuous 
Wharncliff Lodge, wood, and rocks, the 
scene of the celebrated ballad of the 
"Dragon of Wantlcy." To this neigh- 
bourhood, as comprising the residence of 
himself and his ancestors, the attention of 
Mr. Wilson seems to have been especially, 
indeed naturally directed, and Mr. Hunter 
expresses a regret, in which many will 
join, that from these stores of information, 
and from his own rccoUectioos and ob- 
servations, which most have hni'o "'^ '•■bj 
valuable, Mr. Wilaou did not ii 

a history of the places in il" of 

his family residence as should have been 
a standing memorial of his industry and 
bis intimate acquaintance with the sub- 
ject. The documents in this division are 
described under upwards of one hundred 
heads, comprising bundles, teparite pa> 
pern, and volumes, many of them very 
curious. In the third division are de- 
erribrd such paper* as are illustrative of 
niphy or general history ; and al- 
ii of less directly local interest than 
■ .1 itj-t, were, in many respects, illus- 
trative of general facts, or it might be 
valu&ble for their rarity. Under the 
fourth division, Mr. Hunter cksse* v«.

each labelUil with (he u&me of the sore- 
reign uniler whose reign the dormnents 
bore date, Tbe collectioD wm sohi in 
one lot, in tccordimce with a auggpstion 
of Mr. tluntcr, a letter from nhuia, re- 
cently written to Mr. Wilaon, was read, 
in which he remarked : "I cinuot but 
•ipreu a wish that some means could 
hire been or could be ndo[itcd, to keep 
together so curious and interesting a cul- 
lection. Surely there is some person who, 
for the honour and benefit, I may »ay, of 
HaUamshire, will come forward and make 
such an offer as would induce you not to 
suffer the collection, at least the York- 
shire part of it, to be dismembered. It 
should be deposited in some public li- 
brary, and bear the name of the n'ilton 
Collection, in honour of him who formed 
it. It has happened to few parts of the 
kingdom to owe to much to any prirate 
person as HaUamshire does to Mr. Wilson. 
I wish I could myielf afford to buy them, 
and keep the Yorkshire piirt together." 

The biddings were commenced with 
twenty guineas by Mr. Thorpe, the London 
bookseller, and up to fifty pounds, we be- 
lieve, there was a competition on behalf 
of a member of the family of the original 
possessor ; beyond this, the contest lay 
wholly between Mr. Thorpe and William 
Younge, esq. the latter gallantly contest- 
ing the piize, until his competitor bid 
one hundred and sixty-fire guineas, at 
which price the collection was knocked 

down to Mr. Tlioi-pe, who the same night 
earned the whole nith him to London. 
It was subsequently purchased by Mr. 
Ncwnian, the bookseller, of Ilolborn. 
Thus have the men of HaUamshire allowed 
(« le^re the neighbourhood, and to be 
dispersed beyond recal, this curious and 
vnluable collection, and this for a sum 
that oufiht sorely lo have appeared (rifling, 
had a dozen or a score gentlemen united 
for the realization of Mr. Hunter's sug- 
gestion. Ae it is, the neit and future 
generation will probably feel more thank 
ful than the present, that the elaborate 
Hiatory of their birth-place was com. 
piled by that gentleman before the di»i] 
persion of those precious and irretriera 
ble materials. Sir. Vonnge purchased 
for 51. 10s. one of the ancient copper 
plates, which were found on the Stunning, 
ton side of the Rirelin in 17CI. It con- 
tains the names and other particulars, 
supposed by antiquaries to concern the 
manumission and enrolment of soldiers as 
citiiens of Rome, and it described by 
Hunter, p. 18. Two of these plates were 
found : but the more ancient one, of which 
tills was believed to be a duplicate, and 
which was presented by tbe Duke of Nor- 
folk to the Society of Antiquaries, is no 
longer in ciistcnce. Sii old portraits of 
the Macro family were s-old for thirty- 
three guineas, and a portrait of the Duch- 
ess of Portsmouth, by Sir Pelcr Loly, for 
fourteen guineas. 




Alay -4, K letter was read from Josc]>l> 

I Clarke, esq. Architect, on some peculiari- 

I lies which he has noticed in the mode of 

^jointing the stone-work in the tracery of the 

, windows iu the cloisters of Westminster 

Abbey. It has been frequently observed, 

, that lead was used in the joints by the old 

I uasoDs, but it has becu geoenilly supposed 

to be sheet lead cut to tlic monldiugs ; iu 

this instaoee, however, it was evidently 

molten lead poured into grooves prepared 

lo receive it, in the same manner as is 

now practised by plumbers for soldering 

I iron railings. 

Another communication was lead frum 
^the Rev. R. Jackson, of Wreay, Carlisle, 
etpecting the tower of Newlon Arlosh, 
iin Cumh^rUnd. showine sont*? rensons fn 

circumstances mentioned gave probability 
lo it ; but the fact could only be decide 
by an examinalion of the mnsunry of thai 
ruins by competent judges. 

Tbe President of Trinity mentioned the 
receipt of a letter from A. W. Pngin. esq, 
on the subject uf !Spires, alluded to at thfl 
last meeting. Mr. Pugin distinctly re-\ 
asserts as a matter not of Iheorj- but i 
fact, (hat erery caily-Knglisli and Di-cu-^

»lew luure especially to improve the tajtc

I'ry, read the report of the 

■ r the year. The progress 
Mt yn'f\"\^^i of the Society contiuue to 
b« caeering, the number of its members 
to iBoreue, and the interest evinced in its 
objeeti is unabated. Several plans for new 
ckurche*, and proposed restorations of old 
oota, have been submitted to the inspec- 
tioo of the committee, and it is satisfac- 
U>r7 lo be able to state that with very few 
nccptions they have met with their ap-

additions have been made to the collec- 
tion of casts of details during the year, 
particularly some very bcantifnl speci- 
mens from Lincoln Cathedral ; and seve- 
ral valuable books have been added to 
the library of the Society — of which a 
catalogue is printed in the annual report, 
together with a list of Mr. Rickman'a 
drawings, which will be found very v«. 
luable, OS pointing out where good exam- 
ples are to be found of the various parti 
of churches in all the stylca of Gothic 
Arcliitecture. In conclusion, the com- 
mittee obser^'e with pleasure the decided 
improvement in taste and design that hat 
taken place, and is still progressing ; and 
as favourable instances, which have been 
completed during the year, would mention 
the restoration of the Temple Church in 
London, and the Monumental Cross in 
this City. 

A letter was then read by the secretary, 
addressed to the President of Trinity Col- 
lege, by Mr. .\. W. Pugin on the subject 
of Spires ; the object of which was to prove 
the truth of his assertion, that every 
tower in the early- English and Decorated 
styles of Gothic Architecture was ori- 
ginally terminated by a spire, or designed 
to be 90. He cited numerous examplea 
in support of his views, and explained that 
by a spire he means a spiral termination 
of any kind, including a low pyramid, or 
even a gabled roof, — any roof that is not 
flat. Another paper was read by Mr. 
Freeman, of Trinity College on Spire*, 
with a particular reference to those of 
Northamptonshire. The spire seems to 
have originated in the low pyramidal cap- 
ping of the Romanesque steeples, em- 
ployed also frequently in the Gothic 
styles. There are several forms em- 
ployed abroad which are rarely met with 
in this country, where the octagonal form 
is almost univcrssl. Mr. Pugin's theory 
of all early and decorated towers requiring 
the spire, is correct as to the ideal per- 
fection of the style, but appears far from 
correct as a motter of fact. The spire is 
often met with earlier, but seems to have 
come into general use in the time of Ed- 
ward I. of which date ore most of thr fioa

pet, commonly embattled, is very frequent 
daring the Decorated time ; with the Per- 
pendicular style, the embattled tower, a 
feature hardly inferior in beauty to the 
tpire, became more common, but there 
■re some fine spires of this period, es- 
pecially about Birmingham. St . Michael's, 
CoTentry, one of the most beautiful stee- 
ples in the world, is also of this style. 
An iotermediatc form is when the spire 
riaes from a cluster of pinnarle«, as the 
eariy Decorated steeple of St. Mary's. 
The taste for spires never became quite 
eitiaet, as we find them even with 
Italianised details. There arc also some 
excellent restorations of Gothic spires in 
the seTenteenth century, as the reiitml 
one of Lichfield Minster, and (hal of 
Uigham Ferrers Church. The paper was 
illustrated by scTeral |>en and ink slictchcs 
of the spires alluded to from Northamp- 
totuhire and other districts, and also by 
lome etchings of Mr. Pctit's famished by 
Mr. Parker.

An interesting discovery, illustrative of 
the fnncrol customs of the Anglo-Romans, 
has been made in the parish of Rongham, 
in Sullblk,on the estate of Pliilli|< Denuet, 
esq. At the corner of the two roads lead- 
ing to Hetsett and Bradlirld Muiiger, and 
tvithin a few feet of the highway, stands 
the half of a hill called Eastlow hill, and 
a slight distance therefrom were two se- 
micircular mounds, between 51) and 60 
feet in diameter, covered with herbage 
and shrubs. The men belonging to Mr. 
Lerett't farm were engaged in clearing 
away one of these mounds, to lay the soil 
upon the land ; when, on the 7th of July, 
baring come to the centre, they broke 
into an oven-shaped cist or cavern, con- 
taining sepulchral remains. A hole, be- 
tween three and four feet square, appears 
to have been first dug about three feet be- 
low the general level of the surface. Four 
rows of red hoUow tile bricki', each 1 1 
inches long, about C> inches wide, and 7 
inches deep, and ncirlv an inch thick, and 
having a circular hole in the middle of 
each end, were then placed on the soil, 
and covered over with large flat tiles. The 
whole was arched over with tiles, forming 
a chamber of about 3 J feet square and '2 
feet deep ; open at one end. Each tile is 
ornamented with two striated bands, 
placed diagonally from angle to angle, and 
crossing in the centre. In this chamber 
was a large square ranister-shaped urn of 
emerald green glass, with a handle on 
one side. It was nearly 16 inches high 
and >i inches wide ; and was about half 
full of burnt hones, Hy the side of the 
um was a large plain iron lamp, of the 
accustomed form, in length, from the 
wick-chamher to the handle, nearly n 
foot. Unfortunately, from the ignorance 
of the man who made the di»covery, the 
cist wa> ojivni'd so ciirelr5»ly that the line 
and curious urn was broken. This part

In September, 1838, a valuable piece of 
mosaic, representing Orpheus and Cerei, 
with her attributes, was di.vovered in the 
forest of Brothonne, in Normandy. Since 
then the ArchKologieal Society of Caen 
have extended the researches, and found 
a long suite of Roman apartments, and 
several baths. One of the rooms is 
splendidly deiKirated, and on the walls are 
the finest specimens of mosaic work, re- 
presenting various aquatic birds. On one 
side i^ a large stove, with flues to oooTey 
the heal, and on the hearth were charooal 
and ashes, as fresh as if newly brought 
tliere. Auother room was entirely pavod 
with mosaic, but unfortunately only a 
few fragments remain entire, the rest 
having l>ecn crushed by the falling in of a 
wall. There were also found coins, with 
the profiles of Nero, .\ntoninui, Gallienus, 
Claudius, and other Roman Emperors, 
with bricks, tiles, double-headed nails, 
vases of terra cotta of different ooloun, 
pieces of stone, marble, and glass, and 
several articles in iron, lironie, and ivory, 
beside many stags' horns, boars' tusks, 
and booes of animals.

and several instances w< :. Ij 

Irishmen had been spontaneously ap. 
pointed to the public service in ICngland, 
in preference to English or ."Scotch «in- 
didstes. With respect to thecunsiniction 
of railways, he had some doubt of the 
propriety of taxing one part of the coun- 
try for the benclit of the other, unless 
there vms a certainty that the railway 
would become pmfilable ; for otherwise 
it would only give a stimulus for the mo- 
meiit, followed by a greater state of de- 
pression than that which it was intended 
to remedy. In reply to an observation 
of Lord Howick's, he said that the Ko- 
man Catholics now enjoyed equal civil 
rights as the other subjects of the ( Irowu, 
and that the oaths were so altered that 
the olfeiisive portions relating to Iransub- 
staniiulion were abolished. " I am asked," 
said the Kight Hon. BarvincI, " what course 
I intend to pursue? ' Occlare your

This gentleman wa.s principally known 
by publications on architectural antiqui- 
ties and the fine arts. His first work 
was a novel, entitled " roclcbs suited; 
or, the Stanley Letters," iHlii. 

In 181.3 be produced a large volume in 
imperial 4to. called "The History of 
Windsor and its Neighbourhood," with 
21 cngmvings and I i vignettes from his 
own drawings, price five guineas. The 
views were (roni his own pencil. It was 
well received at the time, and many years 
after he was much gratified on receiving 
the thonks of Sir JclTry Wyattville for 
the publication, coupled with the assur-

there they patsed the greater part of the 
years 1810 and 1817, which afforded 
the materials for a " Picturesque Tour 
of Italy," which wa« published, with 
aixty-three plates, in twelve parts, quarto 
and folio, 1818— 18-2U, illuttrated by pa- 
lallelf of Dorton House, Hatfield, I^ng- 
leat,and WoUaton, in Enf;Iand ; and the 
PalaMo Delia Carccllaria, at Rome. This 
i« on interesting irork, both in its literary 
matter and in illustrations. Among the 
latter are some engravings from fine draw- 
ingiby Turner, one of which, a composi- 
tion of Roman edifices, surpasses any 
picture by Pannini. This work was 
brought out with great care, and imme- 
diately obtained a high rank in the esti- 
mation of the public, which it is well 
qualified to retain, as, for accuracy of 
delineation, and excellence of engraring, 
it does not yield to any that sprung from 
that fruitful field. 

In lN2j he published, in folio, " A 
Picturesque Tour in the Island of Ja- 
maica, from drawings made in the years 
IMO and 1821." 

■ In 1828, " Plana. Sections, and Elc\-a- 
tiont of the Abattoirs of Paris, with con- 
liderations for their adoption in London," 

In 1835, "An Attempt to determine 
the exact Character of ElLzabetbaii Ar- 
chitecture," 8vo. 

In the year 1840 he was engnged in 
furnishing drawings for a projected work 
on the Rhine, which it was intended 
should hare been a counterpart to his 
" Italy," but which has never been pub- 
lished, the drawings remaining in the 
hands of the engraver. 

I Mr. Hakewill was much attached to 
the fine arts, and highly esteemed by his 
friends for his taienls uiid kindness of 
heart. His wife died i2it(\ .Imiuiiry |H4i', 
at Calais, on their way home from Ger- 
many, leaving three sons, viho appear to 
potcew the tolenta of their parents.

the trade, a lucky bit. He might have 
had, it ia true, ' The Bridgcwalcr Trea- 
tises," and he made a mistake with ' The 
Rejected ArldrcsEcss.' ' I could have had 
'■ The Rejected Addresses " for ten 
pounds,' he said to the writer of lliis no- 
ticc, ■ but I let them go by as the kite of 
the moment. See the result ! I wjib de- 
termined to pay for my neglect, and I 
bought the remainder of the copyright lor 
liO guineas.' The ' Navy Jjist' and 
other publications ore thus referred to by 
Lord Byron : —

IMy Murray. 

He <aid once, to the present writer: 
' Lord Byron used to come to my shop 
in Fleet Street, fresh from Angclo's 
and Jackson's. Mis great amusement 
was moking thrusts with his stick, in 
fencer's fashion, at the spruce l>ook$, ns 
he called them, which I bod arranged 
upon my shelves. He disordered a row 
for mc in a short time, alnnys hitting the 
volume he had singled out for the exer- 
cise of Ilia ^kill.' He added, with a 
btugh, ' I was sometimes, as you will 
guess, glad to get rid of him.' 

" Let us illustrate his sagacity in bu- 
siness, by an anecdote which will be new 
to many of our renders. Constable pub- 
lished a little < Uislor)' of England ' in 
one small volume, which, ns it wire, fell 
still-born from the press. Murray per. 
ceived its merits, bought Constable's 
share, and bajitiiicd his little purchase by 
the name of ' Mrs. Markham's History 
of England,' a name it still enjoys. The 
work Ilouri»hed in bis hmuls, and is, to 
this day, tealixinga large nniuml profit." 

Another great undertaking of Mr. 
Munay's was the " Family I^ibrary."

many works of much eteellcnce and viduc,

The Literary Gaielle thus speaks of Ml 
Murray : 

" Mis situation in the literary world has 
long l)een most prominent ; and there 
hardly an author of high reputation, eitlii 
now living or dead within the hist qUBrti 
of a century, \^io has not enjoyed his ?i 
timacy and regard. With the maioril 
bis social intercourse was most gratifyini 
and his libemlity towards their publi 
undertakings such us merited thciresteei 
and gratitude. That he was warnii 
hearted and generous will t>e nlloweil by 
who everkncw him ; whilst those who hi 
the pleasure of a more genial acpiaintnui 
with him, will long remember his live] 
conversation, and the ready humoi 
which often set the table in a roar, 
was, indeed, on such occasions a vi 
agreeable companion, and his ready \rl 
was only an indication of the aculeni 
and judgment which he carried into hi 
professional concerns. His clear mi 
in this respect led him to enieqirizca 
great pith and moment ; and we owe to 
some of the most celebrated « orks in oi 
language. * • • He was a true friend fl 
the arts, which he largely employed."

Mb. Urban, Oxford, Aug. 4. 

In the Bccouiit of the FlougbAni AntU 
qaities inserted in your last p. 100, it is 
elated, that, amongst other relics, $pur» 
(as it would appear of Rnman origin,) 
have been found. Could you, through 
the medium of your interesting Maga- 
zine, inform your readers of what material 
they were made, of what shape, and 
whether they possets any peculiarities? 
it Is doubted whether any Roman spur of 
undoubted genuineness has corae down to 
us, nor, as far as 1 can learn, does the 
tpur appear amongst tbeir representations 
of armour. Antkh/aoius. 

Vol. XIX. p. 5U, the Ke\. George 
Jekyll, described as ricarof AVcst Cokcr, 
Dorset, was Rector of that place, and of 
Hawkridgc and Withypool, in Somcrsct- 
abire, in which county the fonncr place is 
also situated, as is stated in the titlc-pngc 
of his " Uaille." He published, in ISil, 
(large 12mo. pj>. xxiv. 359.) a revision of 
the Kev. T. Smith's translation of Daill^, 
" On the Right Use of the Fathers," 
with a preface containing Bishop Warbur- 
ton's laudatory character of the work, 
taken from the preface to his Julian. 
The old translation, which boars the 
name of Smith, was originally published 
in 1061. 

Y. 8. D. observes, " Although English 
scholarfi have spent no little liibour upon 
so cornipt an author as Athenoius, yet 
there has never been an edition of his 
work in this country. It is a book very 
much wanted, for Casaubon's edition is 
too bulky, Scbweigha;uscr's too extensive, 
and Dindorf's too dear. A good edition 
of the text, wilh such notes only as give 
an account of the readings introduced, 
embodying, of course, the whole of Por. 
son's, (from his Adversaria,) would be a 
most valuable irquisition. It might be 
easily accomplished by either of our Uni. 
versitics, and, if printed in the same 
beautiful type as the Oxford edition of 
Uekker's Aristotle, would not occupy 
more than two 8vo. volumes." 

C. H. D. remarks, " In the life of 
Bishop E. Riinhnw, of rarliTlr. prefixed 
to his ^r I'll of 

Anne I pub-

this diary now in existence? If so wbete 
is it to be found ? lip. Rainbow died at 
Rose Castle. 20ih March, 1694.— Ar« 
any of the nnpers or diary of Adam 
Loftus, Archbishop of Armagh, and 
afterwards of Dublin, still in existence?'* 
Mr. SAiiutL Giir.ooav, of the Lord 
Mayor's Court Office, has at length suc-

Letters of Horace Walpuh to Sir Horace Mam, 

vol. I. ii. 

{ConcMhtg Series.) 

THE tetters which arc pubKshed id these roluraes we consider to be 
in no wise inferior to those which preceded them, either in the ability of 
the writer or the interest of tlie subject. They arc written in the same 
graceful and polite manner, full of anecdote, point, and wit. There is less 
of literature or of art iu them than in those letters which Walpole wrote 
to some other of his correspondents; less about Strawberry- Hill and his 
collections, his " Horculaneau pots and pans," bis Limoges enamels, and 
his Dresden china ; fewer jokes by George Selwyn.or satires on his neigh- 
bours at Twickenham. But, as he corrcsi>ondcd with one at a distance, 
Walpole put more materiel into his letters, and as that friend was in a 
|iolitical capacity, and was Envoy at the court of Florence, he wrote what 
a statesman would be most desirous to bear of. We have therefore a to- 
lerably copious account of the state of parties, of the squabbles of ministers, 
and the iuexplicable changes and shifts of the cabinet from the accession of 

"^ urge III. in 17G0 to tlie year 1776 and the American War. The two 
^t patriots, each shining in his own sphere, Wilkes and Lord Chatham, 
lonn the most prominent figures in the canvass. Of the beautiful Gun- 
nings, who used to make us die of envy that we had never seen them, one 
is dead, and the other is supplying with rouge and chalk-powder the ravages 
made by the inexorable tooth of time : but Queen Charlotte appears youth- 
ful and innocent in all her bridal robes and beauty. When we add u little 
about Lord Clive, and a little more relating to Ch.irles Townshcnd, we 
have mentioned the chief personages who are considered worthy of having 
their adventures read, and their characters unfolded, on the banks of the 
Anio. There are some things in these letters valuable in themselves, and 
which may be quoted hereafter as corroborative of historical truth, and 
some which derive their greatest interest from the grace and piquancy of 
the style in which they are told. As we reviewed the Jirst series of tliese 
letters to Sir H. Maun when they appeared,* aud more recently the col- 
lected edition of Wiilpoles Letters, we have little to add to what we then 
expressed relating to his epistolary style, aud his excellence in that difficult 
itiou which letter-writing requires. Cowper the poet 
r always thought Swift's letters to be the best in the 
hughah laiiguagc, till he read those of Gray ; aud Walpole, though far 
inferior to (tray in the powers of his mind, in splendour of genius, 
SLiid extent and solidity of learning, possessed in common with Gray 
that ready and quick observation, that quaint humour, those hajipj 
and appropriate expressions, that light and delicate touch, whicg 
are at once so effective and so rare. The letters of Gray are richc 

Jn literature, more solid and judicious in thought and reflection, more 
acute aud profuuud in criticism, aud arc gcnernlly employed on more 

Important subjects. They are too at times dashed with a grave aud

deep inelanclioly, in strong contrast to tbeir llglitcr and livelier toni 
Tliey have, as might be expected, a more collegiate or scliolustic expr ^ 
sion, as if tiiey were shaded by the gloom and sileuce of the academic 
cloister. Both writers are indebted to Mad. de Sevigxi^, who was in some 
degree their model : neither of them perhaps equalled her in the inimitable 
grace and siioplieity of her manner ; but both had the advantage in th« 
greater variety of their subject matter ; for, after all allowances that 
are so willing to make, Mad. de Sevigiie's extreme maternal solicitnde gi 
to her long correspondence too monocroinat ic an air, in spite of the match- 
less felicity of her expression, and the various fascinating lights in which 
the same subject is represented. It is curious that with this one exception 
(for we do not think it necessary to include Mad. de Maintenon) the 
French have, contrary to our expectations, and apparently contrary to 
the bent of their genius, little to boast of in the department of let 
writing ; which we may perhaps account for in this way, that in the da] 
of Louis XIV. the women were not sulficiently educated to write well, ai 
in the time of Louis XVI. they were filled with deeper thoughts, and cm- 
ployed in graver occupations. We, on the contrary, possess several vo- 
lumes, all pleasing and interesting, of epistolary corresiKindence by females 
of high rank and education. To the well-known volume of Lady \V. Mon- 
tague,* we add those of Lady Russell, Lady Har\cy, Lady Suffolk, and 
Lady Luxborough.t The French have found a due exercise of their talent 
in their Memoirs, which are of first-rate excellence, and with which wc 
have nothing to compare. As regards the claims of \\'al|)ole to public 
attention, though we believe that time is a most correct judge aod esti- 
mator of all ability, and therefore pay little attention to the complaint of 
neglected merit and overlooked deserts, yet wc think that the writer of 
the present letters is scarcely at suflicicnt distance from us to Iw viewed 
with that impartiality which is necessary to fix and determine the exact 
value of his works. The age which has succeeded his, has been of u dif- 
ferent character, cast in another mould, and his views of society are as a 
thing passed away, or seen only at a distance, as in a picture or description. 
His ladies and gentlemen, with their hoops and their jwwder, their hi|^ " 
heeled shoes, their bags and solitaires, seem like things framed and gla?y 
rather than living persons. When the age of philosophers urosc, tin 
was no longer sympathy with virtuosos, wits, collectors, and antiquari 
Selwyn's bon mots and Walpole's stained glass were both at a discount. 
his time factious politicians and rival demagogues were stpiabbling for pli 
and |>eusion and power ; in the age after, nations and cmjiircs were sfri 
gling for victory and gasping for existence. No one iu \\'alj)ole's tii 
thought or cared what the people thought, and nobody now seems to 

or think of anything else; our situation, our taste, our literature, our tcmj: 

and our disposition have all lietn changed since Walpole's days j wc har« 
been more serious, more thoughtful, more philosophie.-d, and more busy. 

At the sale of StrawbiTry Hill, the lock dissevered from the beauteous 
fj-esses of Mad. Maintenon, and placed among Wuliwle's choicest hoarda,

I to t' -t^ of his coontry than th»t af any wh'> have sncccfdod Kim 

fto ti f day, and he never suppressed, even in the midst of his op- 

fiis high opinion of his father's merits, nnd his fili.d partifvlity to 
•ry. He says himself more than oneo, that he liked politieal strife 
iand party skirmishes, and that he had the spirit of faction witliin him. 
I How decided were his feelings uu some subjects mny l>e seen in liis writings ; 
be hmted all the family of the Hardn ickes because they were op(>oscd to 
I liis father ; nnd he never mentions Akcuside without n sneer of contempt, 
I wtiirb may be traced to the poet's high eulogy of Pultcney. the great «n- 
iiUt of Sir Robert Walpole. To some persons also there appeared 
JTcctation in Wal|>ole's manners and mode of life, which passed beyond 
boands of what is called refinement and high breeding, and « hicli 
I CYpo«ed him to the charge of foppery and pride of rank, and cflTcminntc 
i conceit. He dressed and behaved in the extreme of French manners 
then fashionable ; entered a drawing-room on tiptoes, with his small 
chapeau dc bras under his arm, and saluted his friend according to the 
foreign custom on both cheeks.* These singularities, though with him 
tbey were things only on the surface, were not well fitted to beget |K>pu- 
larity. His researches in literature and art were rather adapted to the 
curiosity of the few; they were among the best of their class, but that class 
was not to the public taste. One of his works, as that on Kichard the 
Third, was considered to be a paradoxical essay, chiefly designed to show the 
ingenuity or research of the writer, though it is in fact a work of much merit. 
The Castle of Otranto was an invention built in that wild and fanciful 
district which lies on the very edge and limits of rational fiction. His 
versed are scarcely above mediocrity, and in the same line much inferior to 
those of Lord Chesterfield and others. His works on Engravers and 
Painters, and on Koyal and Noble Authors, arc books limited to the cu» 
riosity of the few. Tlins, neither by his personal character nor by liis 
writings was he likely to become a favourite of the public, or indeed much 
known to them ; and, after all, we are not unwilling to admit, that W'al- 
jwlc's knowledge of art was not so accurate and extensive as might have 
been expected from one who had apparently devoted so much time nnd 
research to it, who had formed such large collections, and cstiblislied so 
high H ch.iracter. His favourite house is but the original toy-shop en- 
larged — a frail memorial of imperfect and unripcned knowledge, though it 
seems to have been erected and ,'i[)priivcd by " a standing Couimittee of 
Taste, "t who may be seen at their labours in the picture of Sir Joshua 

His noble visitors from France, who had been used to the massive 
and lordly cistlcs of their own country, each one of which emptied a

iiicli as came up to the liigb expectations of the public : his large collec- 
iunsof prints were of various quality, and a great part consisted of injured oi 
ditTereut specimens. His books were, with few Lxceptions, of little value 
If rarity. The famous Eagle, tlie gem of his collection and the pride of hi* 
;allery, to which he introduccil cvcrj- eager visitor, fetched a comparatively 
imall sum, and is now at Holkham. His silver bell could not find a pur* 
chaser.* The history of the finest missal has been disproved ; and he was 
ia error with regard to the subjects and teras of some of his old historical 
ictares. Vet, with all these drawbacks, there was much that was both 
iurious and beautiful in art that emerged to view from the recesses of his 
stly cabinets ; his miniatures were of first-rate excellence, and many of 
is portraits original and hne. It could not be said of Walpole's, that, liko 
ither collections, the proprietor could not estimate nor enjoy them. He had 
istinct purposes iu view for what he purchased and preserved ; he examined 
d studied the materials he collected, which were intended to iliustrate the 
istory of art. His days were employed in elegant and instructive re- 
learchcs into antiquity ; and surely there are but few noblemen iu England, 
lithcr living at his time or since, who, retired from public life, and having 
lid farewell to the senate or the forum, will leave behind them more ho- 
nourable marks of their industry and zeal and knowledge i and we may 
add in conclusion, that few men have had the gratification of having their 
rtraits drawn by more discriminating hands, or in brighter colours ; for 
nyers Middletou eulogised his talents while he was living, and Lord 
Byron defended his memory when he was dead. 

We shall now proceed to make such extracts from the Letters as may 
be of interest either in themselves, or may derive their charm and attraction 
from the style of the writer. \A'liere can we better commence than with 
Ve auspicious arrival of the Princess of Mecklcuburgh iu the metropolis,

in the dust." Protestant Gennany was saved. America was as yet dissevered 
from tlic British Crown, and the fonndntion of our great empire was laid 
ou the distant banks of tlic Ganges. " Then," as a philuBunhic historian lias 
observed,* " parties awoke again, otie hardly knows now or why, and 
their struggle during the early part of the reign of George the Third was 
of such a ciiaracter, that, after studying it attentively, we turn from it, as 
a portion of history equally .inomaloiis and disagreeable." The most pro- 
minent names in this very degraded state of English party wereWilkes 
and Junius. The King was supposed to be disinclined to the principles 
of the Revolution. Tiie popular and successful minister, Mr. Pitt, had re- 
signed — Lord Bute, the King's personal favourite, as was supiwsed, was 
said to be attaclied to the anti-popular party. Here then was the hot-bed 
of mischief formed, out of which arose the factious and unprincipled 
leaders of the people — from this came the North-Briton and the Letters 
of Junius, — the disputed election of Wilkes — and after that followed the 
Hinch greater event, the contest with America. It is to the particulars 
involved in these events that the Letters of Walpole refer. 
Of Mr. Pitt we find him speaking in the following manner: 

" A week afterwardi the King, 
Queen, and royal family dined vrith the 
Lord Mayor ; but a young King and a 
new Quern were by no meaua the princi- 
pal objects of attention. A chariot and 
pair containing Mr, Pitt and Lord Tem- 
ple, formed the chief part of the triumph. 
The reception, acclamation, and distinc- 
tion paid to Mr. Pitt through the ftreeta, 
and the obserrancc of him in Guildhnll, 
vere equal to any thing you cau imagine. 
You will call his appe<irance there arro- 
gant, — I do not think it wa» very well- 
bred. Since that — for pensions stop the 
mouths only of courtiers, not of the vir- 
tuous — he has harangued in the House 
with exceeding applause ; — it was fine, 
guarded, artful — very inflammatory. 
Don't think I am paying court by cen- 
suring a late minister. He is too near 
being minister again for mine to be inte- 
rested conduct. It never was my turn, 
nor do the examples I see make me more 

io love with the practice. Nor think mo 
changed lightly about Mr. Pitt — nobody 
admired hira more — you saw it. When 
he preferred haughtiness to humanity, 
glory to peaceful glory, — when his dis- 
interestedness could not resist a pension, 
nor a pension make him grateful, — he 
changed, not I. When he courts a mob, 
I certainly change ; and whoever does 
court the mob, whether an orator or a 
mountebank, whether Mr. Pitt or Dr. 
llock, are equally contemptible in my 
eyes. Could I now decide by a wish, be 
should have remained in place, or have 
been ruined by his pension.f When be 
would not do all the good in his power, 
I would leave him no power to do harm, 
— would that were always the case t 
Alos ! I am a specolatist and he is a 
itatcsman ; but I have that advantage or 
disadvantage over others of my profci- 
siou, 1 have seen too much to flatter 
myself witb visions." 

He goes on with the same subject in a subsequent letter. 

" Parliament is adjourned to the nine- 
teenth of January. My gallery ndvancta, 
and I posh on the works there, for pic- 
tures, and baubles, and buililings look to 
me as if I realized sometbiog. I had

years ago, that she needed have taken it 
for flatter]-, but she did, and literally 
gave me a box on the ear. She is very 
lively, all her senses perfect, her language 
as imperfect as ever, her orarice gtraler, 
She entertained me at first with nothing 
but the deamess of provisions at Uelvoet. 
With nothing but an Italian, a Frencfa, 
and a Prussian, all men servants, and 
something she calls an old aecrctary, but 
whose age till he appears will be doubt- 
ful ; she receives all the world, who go to 
homage her as cjuecn mother.f and crami 
them into this kennel. The Duchess of 
Hamilton, who came in just after me, 
was so astonished and diverted, that she 
could not speak to her for laughing. She 
says that she 1ms left all her clothes at 
Venice. I really pity Lady Bute ; what 
will be the progress of such a commence- 
ment ?" 

This foreboding bowever was useless, for poor Lady Mary closed her 
eventful atid singular and wayward life a short time after.

too little to detail it to you ; and, even 
now, I can tell you little more than the 
outlines and general report : but have pa- 
tience ; this is one of the events which in 
this country will produce paprr-war 
enough, and, between attacks and defences, 
one comes pretty near to the truth of tho 
whole. Last Sunday was ec'nnight Lord 
Egremont died suddenly, though every 
body knew he would die suddenly ; be 
used no exercise, (and could not be kept 
from eating,) without which prodigious 
bleedings did not suffice. A day or two 
before hn died, he said, ' WrII I have but 
three turtle dinners to come, ."ind, if I 
survive them, I shall be immortal.' lie

a flood of teart, reflecting on tlie great 
rank which her lord, if living, wonid 
natnrnlly attnin on this uci^osion. I think 
I have nothing more to tell you, but a 
bon-uiot of my lady Townshcnd. She has 
iken a strange little Titla at Paddtngton, 
lear Tyburn. People were wondering at 
lier choosing such a situation, and asked 
her, in joke, what sort of a neighbour- 
hood she had : ■ Oh,' said she, ' one that 
can never tire me, for they are hanged 
every week.' — Good night. This would 
be a furious long letter, if it was not 
short by containing a whole revolution. 

" George Selwyn, of whom you have 
heard so much, but don't know, is re- 

turned from Paris, whither he went with 
the Duchess of Bedford. He stays, our 
passion for everything French is nothing 
to theirs, for cvcrytbing English. There 
is a book published, called the Anglo- 
inanie. How much worse they under- 
stand us, even than we do them, you will 
see by this stoi-y. The old Marechale de 
Villors gave a vast dinner to the Duchess 
of Bedford. In the middle of the dessert, 
Madame de Villars called out, • Oh 
lyord ! they liave forgot I yet I bespoke 
them, and I am snrc they arc ready ; you 
English love hot rolls — bring the rolls.' 
There arriveil n huge dish of hot roUs, 
and a sauce-boat of melted butter." 



Of Cliiiichiil, tliat unrortmiate cliilrl of genius, who niucli mistook his 
vocation whcu he [>ut on the priest's raiment, and who tvorshippcd both 
Bacchus and Apollo on the same altar, we liave the following account. 

" Churchill the poet is dead,* — to the 
great joy of the ministry and the Scotch, 
and to the grief of very few indeed, I be- 
lieve ; for such a friend is not only a 
dangerous, but a ticklish possession. "The 
next revolution would have introduced the 
other half of Eniflnnd into his satires, for 
no party could have promoted him, and 
woe had betided those who had left him 
to shift for himself on Parnassus 1 He had 
owned that his pen itched to attack Mr. 
Pitt and C'hnrlrs Tonnshend, and neither 
of them are men to have escaped by their 
■teadiness and uniformity. This meteor 
blazed scarce four years ; for his Rosciad 
was lubsequent to the accession of the 

resent King, before which his name was 

lever heard of; and, what is as remark- 

ible, he died in nine days after his an- 
tagonist, Hogarth. Were I (,'lmrou, I 
should without scruple give the best place 
in my boat to the latter, who was nu 
original genius. Churchill bad great 
powers ; but, besides the facility of 
outrageous satire, almost uU his compo- 
sitions were wild and extravagant, ex- 
ecuted on no plan, and void of the least 
correction. Many of his characters were

pains in my stomach and limbs, and a 

obscure even to the present age ; and some 
of the most known were so unknown to 
him, that he has misseil all resemblance, 
of which Lord Sandwich is a striking 
instance. He died of a dninken debauch 
at Calais, on a visit to his friend Wilkes, < 
who is going to write notes to his works. 
But he had lived long enough for himself, 
at least for his reputation and his want of 
it, for his works began to decrease con- 
siderably in vent. He has left some 
sermons, for be wrote even sermons ; 
but lest they should do any good , and for 
fear they should not do some hurt, he had , 
prepared a dedication of them to Bishop j 
WBrburton,+ whose arrogance and venom ' 
had found a proper corrector in Church- 
ill. I don't know whether this man's 
fame had extended to Florence ; hut you 
may judge of the noise he made in this 
part of the world by tin- following trait, 
which is a pretty instance of that good

was 80 diminished, as to have brought her 
into great difficulties. Yet they were not 
even suspected, for she had a patience 
and command nf herself that prevented 
her ever complaining of cither fortune or 
illness. No mortal but Lord Chctwynd 
and I were acquainted with her real situa- 
tion. I eat with her two hours on Saturday 
night, and though I knew thot she wi 
ill, and found her much changed, did ni 
suspect her danger so great. The next 
evening she was better; and, retiring to 
her chamber to supper with Lord Chet- 
wynd, she pressed her hand suddenly to 
her side and expired in half an hour. I

he had nlwayi a meiiscing conntitution. 
He bnd had a fercr the whole summer, 
recovered, as it was thought, relapsed, 
was neglected, and it turned to an in- 
curable putrid fever. The Opposition 
expected that the loss of this essential 
pin would loosen the whole frame ; but it 
had been hard if both his life and death 
wereto he pernicious to the administration. 
He had engaged to betray the latter to 
the former, as I knew early, and as Lord 
Mansfield has since declared. I there- 
fore coald not think the loss of him a 


misfortune. His seals were immediatdy 
offered to Ijord North, who declined then. 
The Opposition rejoiced; but thejr oiighC 
to biirc been better acquainted with one 
educated in their own school. Lord 
North has since accepted the seals, and 
the reversion of his father's pension. 
While that eccentric genius, Charles 
Townshcnd, whom no system could con- 
tain, is whirled out of existence, our more 
artificial meteor, Ijord Chatham, seems 
to be wheeling back to the sjihere of 
business, at least his health is declared to 
be re-established ; but he has lost bit 
adorer*, the mob, and I doubt the WIM

" I was interrupted yesterday. The 
ghost is laid for a time in a red sea of port 
and claret. This spectre is the famous 
Wilkes. He appeared the moment the 
Parliament was dissolved. The ministry 
despise him. He stood for the city of 
London, and was the lost on the poll of 
seven candidates ; none but the mob, and 
most of them without votes, favouring 
bim. lie then olfered himself to the 
connty of Middlesex. The election came 
OD last Monday. By five in the morning 
■ very large body of weavers, &c. took 
posses-iion of Piccadilly, and the roads 
and turnpikes leading to Brentford, tind 
would suffer nobody to pass without blue 
cockades, and papers inscribed " No, 4,5, 
Wlkes and Liberty." Tlicy tore to 
pieces the cnoches of Sir W. Bcauchamp 
Proctot, and Mr. Cooke, the other candi 
dates, though the latter was not there, but 
in bed with the gout, and it was with 
dilficalty that Sir William and Mr. Cooke's 
cousin got to Urentford. There, however, 
lest it should be declared a void election, 
Wilkes had the sense to keep everything 
quiet. But, about five, Wilkes, being 
considerably a-head of the other two, his 
mob returned to town and behaved out- 
rageously. T' • '

and stones, and forced ev. uu«

now with great spirit against Wilkes, and 
the Mansion House not being illuminated, 
and he out of town, they broke every 
window, and tried to force their way into 
Uic house. The trained bands were sent 
for, but did not suffice. At last a party 
of guards, from the Tower, and some 
lights erected, dispersed the tumult. At 
one in the morning a riot began before 
Lord Bute's boose, in Audley Street, 
though illnmioatcd. They flung two large 
flints into Lady Bute's chamber, who was 
in bed, and broke every window in the 
house. Next morning Wilkes and Cookf 
were returned members. The day wat 
very quiet, but at night they rose agaJDi 
and obliged almost every house in town 
to be lighted up, even the Duke of Cum- 
berland's and Princess Amelia's. About 
one o'clock they marched to the Duchest 
of Hamilton's in .Argyle-bnildings (Lord 
Lorn being in Scotland). She was obsti- 
nate, and would not illuminate, though 
with child, and, as they hope, of an heir 
to the family, and with the Duke, her 
son, and the rest of her children in the 
house. There is a small court and

never have, occaaiou to come to a concla^

I know less of the common affairt of the 
world than if I bad lived all my dayt iaJ

Again he writes, 

" I bavo no news to tcU you. You 
know as much of Wilkes and Townsbeud 
as I do from (heir memoriulx in the news- 
papers. The famous Junrut seems at 
last to issue from the shop of the former, 
though the composition is certainly above 
Wilkes himself. Tlie styles are often

6eld, who bad already been frigbtaned 
out of the Speaker's chair, will not be 
encouraged by a Junius that came 
yesterday, the most oulrageoui, I 
pose, ever published against so higl 
magistrate by name. The excess of abiue, 
the personality, and new attacks on the 
Scotch make people ascribe it to Wilkes; to 
me the composition is for above bimi'dte.

blended, and very djstinguisbable, but 
nobody knows who it is that deigns to 
fight in disguise under Wilkes's banner* 
So far this unknown knight will not 
resemble his predecessors in romance, 
that he probably will not disclose himself 
and demand the princesi* in marriage." 

The early uotices of Burke appearing above the political horizoD, 
and almost ticw to fame, though brief, are worthy notice. He is first 
mentioned in January 12, 1770, 

" A most unheard-of attack baa been 
made on the House of Commons ; Sir 
George Savile, a man of grr^t fortune, 
■potless character, and acute though in- 
judicious bead, has twice told them to 
their faces that they sit illegally, having 
betrayed th«ir trust, and that he waa 
ready to receive the punishment for telling 
them so. Burke, not quite so rich, nor 
immaculate, but of belter abililiet, has 
twice said as much, and allowed that he 
ought to be sent to the Tower for wluit be 
said, but knew their guilt was too great tu 
let them venture to commit him. Hitherto 

this language has been borne ; but, asth 
is not so great a mule as a martyr, 
have no doubt but these two saints 
insist on receiving the crown of glolj 
and it is said many more will demand I 
honour of sharing iheir cross. * 
Lord Chatham baa talked on tbe Mil 
dlcsex election till nobody will answer 
him ; and Mr. Burke, Loril Kockinjham't 
governor, has published 8 pam]>li]et that 
has sown the utmost discord between that 
faction and the supporters of the Bill of 
Rights. Mrs. Macaulay has writtea 
against it." 

He also mentions that, at the opening of the PnrliRioeiit in Nov. 177^ 

" Lord North spoke well, and with 
•t prudence. Col. Barre with wit and 
erity. Burke varmty anil not tcelt." 

" A country is undone before people 
<lifitinguish between affected lutd real 
virtue, and Cato is dead before snylmdy 
minds him. I could write a volume of 
reflections or comparisons, but to what 
purpose? Writings impel, but csii re-

rion ; but how does it hart me ? They 
ciUi neither frighten me nor deprive nic of 
«ny cnjoYment. I UukH at I lieir dignity, 
which 1 generally see built or leaning on 
meuioeu and tUrcry ; and wiiich is be^t 
founded, their contempt or mine ? To )>c 

I determined to be content vilh little, is to 
determine that one'a happiness shall de- 
pend on no one but one'iS'ScU ; but, if 
consideration is one's (mint, I do not see 
why one should be satisfied without being 
emperor of the world. One superior 

would mortify me more than a thousand 
inferiors homoging mc would contrihnb 
to my ^alisfaetinn'. but when one is em4 
peror of onc's-wlf, all is harmony end 
sunshine. And, depend upon it, a tao4 
derate fortune is more capable of hestowi 
ing and ensuring that reign, than any po<j 
aition of grandeur. Were I rich, mj 
ncpbens nnd nieces would be attentive 
and sincere enough ; I tike better 
know their heart't."' 

But we must illustrate this profession of philosojihy ; for example, 




"The current of time hurries every- 
thing along with it, and if we have the 
patience to sit still and sec it pass ii is 
sure of washing away our vexations, as 
well as our pleasures ; and, both being 
dreaniB, are not woi-th reniembrauce. I 
have attained so much habitual philoso- 
phy (for I believe in no other) that events 
which would formerly have distressed me 
exceedingly, do not now put me out of 
temper; as I experienced last week. A 
dosen powder-mills, within tivn miles of 
Twickenham, blew up last week, and 
almost levelled my castle ns low as Troy. 
This is fur from true ; but the explosion 
really demolished four of my windows of 
painted glass, and broke as many more. 

I neither stomached it like a .Stoic, noq 

d d the undertaker of the millk likq 

a Christian. I shall set about mcndlDf 
them with the patience of Pcnclopa 
though with the prospect of having then 
ruined again, for, as Mr. lientley said, in 
this country ' abuecH oj-e freehold?.* and I 
do not believe the neighbourhood will get 
the mills removed. The Duke of North- 
umberland, to raise his rent a triflei 
obtained an Act of Parliament for lhi(" 
nuisance ; indeed, he got the consent 
the gentlemen within the circuit, by pro-" 
misiog they should be corn-mills; but the 
Act was no sooner passed, than, lo! limy 
became powder-mills ! and have torn the 
whole county to pieces !" dc. 

The following letter relates to tlic presumod insuiiity of his relative I>ord 
Orford, who was supposed iiicnpable of inaiinging liib af^iirs, nliich 
inanageinciit devolved on Mr. Wnlpolc, and .tt liis death he took the title 
aud estates. 

" When my mind reposes a little, I 
smile at myself, t intended to trifle out

sicians, and jockeys ! Yes ; this whole

" Id the midst uf thia cuinhugtion ft. e. 
ttf' election*) we are in perils by land and 
water. It has rained for this month 
without intermission. There is a sea be- 
tween me and Richmond, and Sunday 
was se'nnight I was harried down to Isle- 
worth in the ferry-boat by the violence of 
the current, and had great difficulty to 
get to shore. Our roads are so infested by 
highwaymen that it is dangerous stirring 
out almost by day. Lady Hertford was 
attacked on Houuslow Heath at three in 
the afternoon. Ur. Eliot was shot at, 
three days ago, without having resisted ; 
and the day before yesterday we were 

I near losing our Prime Minister, Lord 
Korth ; the robbers shot at the postilion, 
■ad wounded the latter. In short, all 
tbe/reelioolert that are not in India have 
token to the highway. The ladies of the 
'bedchamber dare not go to the Queen at 
JCew in an evening. The lane between 
me and the Thames is the only safe road I 
Itnow at present, for it is up to tbe middle 
of the horses in water. Next week I ?haU 
not venture to London, even at noon, for 
the Middlesex election is to be at Brent- 
ford, where the two demagogues, Wilkes 
and TowDshend, oppose each other ; and 
at Richmond there is no crossing the 
river. How strange all this must appear 
to yon Florentines ; but you may turn to 
your Machiavelli and Guicciardini, and

|t--a noUtial and moral eroit I the sudden 
niwih of that geoond KouU Kbau, Lord 

Clive. There was certainly illnen in the 
cnse ; the world thinks more than illness. 
His constitution was exceedingly broken 
■nd disordered, and grown subject to vio- 
lent pains and convulsions. He carae 
unexpectedly to town lost Monday, and 
they say ill. On Tuesday his physidan 
gave him a dose of laudanum, which had 
not the desired elfect. On the rest, there 
are two stories ; one, that the physician 
repeated the dose ; the other, that he 
doubled it himself, contrary to advice. 
In short, he has terminated at fifty a life 
of so much glory, reproach, art, wealth, , 
and ostentation ! He had just named ten j 
members for the new parliament. Next 
Tuesday that parliament is to meet — and 
a deep game it has to phy I few parlia- 
ments a greater. The world is in amaze 
here that no account is arrived from Ame- 
rica of the rcanlt of their General Con- 
gress — if any is come it is very secret ; j 
and tAat has no fiivourable aspect. The 
combination and spirit there seem to be 
universal, and is very alarming. I am the 
humble servant of events, and yon know 
never meddle with prophecy. It would 
be difficult to descry good omens, be the 
issue what it will. The old French Par- 
liament is restored with great eclat.

We make our last extract from the letters describing the death of WaN 
'pole's oldest and most intimate friend, Mr. Chute, of the Vine, in Hamp- 
shire ; he was also the friend of (!ray. and from liis house, near Basing- 
stoke, some of Gray's letters are dated. His character uill be best given in 
Walpole's own words, still warm with the glow of affection, and painting 
Strongly the severity of his loss. 

" This foUl year (1776) puU to the 
proof the nerves of my friendship I I was 
disappointed of seeing you when I had set 
my heart on it, — and now I have lost Mr. 
Chute I It is a heavy blow ; but such 
strokes reconcile one's-self to parting with 
this pretty vision, life ! What is it, when 
one has no longer those to whom one 
speaks as confidentially as to one's own 
soul ? Old friend; are the great blessing 
of one's latter years— half a word conveys 
one's meaning. They have memory of 
the same events, and have the same mode 
of tliinking. Mr. Chiile and I agreed 
invariably in our principles ; he was my 
■ counsel in my affairs, was my oracle in 
'taste, the standard to whom I submitted 
my trifles, and the genius that presided 
over poor Strawberry ! His sense decided 
me in every thing ; his nit and quickness 
illuminated every thing. I saw him 
ofi«ner than any man ; to him in every 
difficulty I had recourse, and him I loved 

to have here, as our friendship was so 
entire, and wc knew one another so en- 
tiiely, that he alone never was the least 
constraint to me. Wc parsed many hours 
together without saying a syllable to each 
other — for we were both above ceremony. 
I left him without excusing myself, read 
or wrote before him, as if he were not 
present. Alas I alas I and how tc\f pre- 
sides even in our grief! I am lamenting 
myself, not him I no, I am lamenting ray 
other self. lialf is gone ; the other re- 
mains solitary. Age and sense will make 
me bear my affliction with submiMsion .ind 
composure— but for ever — (hat \itl\c fur 
ever that remains, 1 shall miss liim. My 
first thought will always be, 1 vUl go talk 
to Mr. t'hule on thu, — the second, alat .' 
I cnnnnt ; and therefore judge how my 
life is poisoned ! 1 shall only seem to he 
staying behind one who has set out a 
little before mc." 



Here follows a description of his disease and death. 

And why should I lament ? His eyes, 
[jdways short-sighted, were grown dimmer, 
litis hearing was grown imperfect, his hands 
were all chalk-stones and of Utile use, his 

Feet very lame — yet how not lumrnt ? The 
Tigour of his mind was strong as ever ; 
liis power of reasoning clear as demon- 
stration ; his rapid wit astonishing as at 
forty, about which time you and I knew 
him first. Even the im]>etuosity of his 
temper was not abated, and all his bo- 
nuuic virtues bed but increased with his 
.age. He was grown sick of the world ; 
w very, very few persons; submitted 
[trith unparalleled patience to all his sof- 
"Vrings ; ond, in live-and-thirty years, I 

levcr once saw or heard him complain of 
them, nor, passionate as he was, knew 

him fretftil. His impatience seemed to 
proceed from his vast sense, not from hii , 
temper : he saw every thing so clcarljr I 
and imn ' ' ilml he could ntpt bear ! 
a mom i diction from fully or 

defective ... — ..X. Sudden contempt i 
broke out, particularly on politics, whicii, i 
having been fixed in hiiu by a most sensi- 
ble father, and matured by deep rrtlpclion, 
were rooted in his inmost soul, Htl 
truth, integrity. I.e. I ab-

and stcaily. was nricn 1. ik off |

After their first dissolutioD by Henry 
VIII, the nuns of Syon had resided at 
Deimond in Klanders, where Cardinal 
Pule found them ; and at his reco 
mcndution lliey were restored to thei 
monastery at Syon ; but the enjoyi 
tnent of their possessions was of short 
duration, for on the accession of Queen 
Klizabcth the house at Syon was 
ngain dissolved. The nuns did not 
separate ; but returned to Dermood in 
Fl.indcrs, where they lived for somo 
years, but being greatly impovcrishei 
Philip II. grunted Ihcm a pensioi 
At the same lime (1563), the Duchess 
of Parmn, Regent of Flanders, assigned 
Ihcrn a tnonaslery in Zealand. They 
rcroaiued there till I5G8, when llicy 
removed to Drabant, where they dwell 
four or five years. The Pflcstai 
annoying theni, tlicy fled to Antwer] 
where they remained a year, and wei 
removed to Mechlin, where they livi 
.^evcn years under the protection of 
Krnncia Ktigleficld. They remaini 
at Mrchliii until it was taken by tl 
Prince of Orange, when Ihry went 


Syon Monarttry. 



Antwerp, and then fled to Rouen, 
where they resided acme time, and were 
much inconvenienced during the siege 
of that city hy Henry IV. They there- 
fore determined to leave Knuen ; and 
arrived at Lisbon, 2d May, K>9'l. 

In 1031 both church and monastery 
were burnt to the ground, and in tG5G 
they returned to their monastery after 
it was rebuilt. The monastery suSered 
much, in common with the whole city, 
during the dreadful earthquake at 
Lisbon, in 1756. 

An interesting picture of this re- 
ligious society as it existed in 176O is 
exhibited by Baretti, in his "Journey 
from London to Genoa." 

*' It it called the English nunnery, be- 
ctiue no girl is admitted in it but what ie 
born a subject of England. 1 1 consists of 
little more than 20. The chief anxiety 
of the community is to keep their number 
full. They are liberal to every body of 
choooUte, cakes, and iweetmeatf. Nuns 
in all countries are soft ood obliging 
■peakers ; bat these am certainly the 
iofteat and most obliging that ever fell in 
mjr way. 

"Not a syllable issued from their lips 
but what was dictated by modesty and 
racekiie'S, humility and benevolence. 
The King allows them such a sum as 
enablesthemtofind themselves in victuals, 
linen, and raiment. Yet life, even by re- 
cluse women, cannot be passed very 
comfortably with mere neoessaries, aud 
some addition is wanting to keep it from 
(tagnating. These minute superfluities, 
which the French caJl tlouceurt, are left 
entirely to their iodnstry ; and these 
they procure partly by work, aud partly 
by making trifling presents, which arc 
often returned with liberality. Some have 
small jicnsions paid by their friends, aud 
whatever is got by one is shared by all."

munity at Lisboo till I6O9, when •

When the remains of the unfortu-

G«neral Grey found it in vain to at- 
tempt any thing against Fleur d'Epee, 
he being obliged to detach the 2Dd 
battalion of grenadiers to cover the 
retreat, and liis troops being all so

erected to cover the attack on fort

who flocked to hi* sUadard, while, oo 

, the part of the British, disease auddeath 
Dad* dreadful havoc in tbeir ranks. 
t>« remains of the 3nd battalion of 
grenadiers, consisting of onl^- 70 rank 
and file, were ordered to Guadaloupe 
to relieve the flank companies of the 
15th and 64th. Several companies 

,c> produce a single man tit for 

\c the 43rd could not afford 

corporal and three men at night for 

k« protection of their own camp. The 

^greater part of the town of Petit Bourg 
vas converted into hospitals for the 
sick, and such was the »Late of even 
the officers, that field officers were 
oliligetl to moant captain's guard, 
while the 70 grenadiers that last ai- 
rivcd were, in three weeks, reduced to 
SO men. 

In this deplorable state of our troops 
the eiirmy from Point k Piti« and Fort 
Loui3 embarked a large body of troops, 
and, under cover of the dark night, 
pasMd our ships of war un perceived, 
and landed on Basse Tcrre. After 
taking possession of the two posts in 
the vicinity of which they landed, viz. 
Bay Mahault and Gabarre, they made 
their appearance in sight of the Eng- 
lish camp. 

The enemy on taking nossrssion of 
Petit Bourg exercised the most un- 
hearJiif cruelties on the unfortunate 
>■' lospitals, putting all whom 

ti ltd to the sword. From 

thfc hospitals to the wharf was a con- 
tinued scene of misery and horror, 
iog atrewed with the bodies of the 
who were barbarously put to 
death as they were crawling to the 
shore in hopes of escaping in the boat«. 
llie enemy next took Point Bac- 
chus, where Colonel Drummond of 
the 4^d, and his party of royalifls, 
were taken prisoners.*

Oa the 2{|Ui of Sepitciaber, ia tha^ 
momtng, the eneny began to 
our advanced work ; in Ilia 
Berville our field-piccca aad 
opened a heavy fire npon them, 
an engagement ensued, which contU 
nued with equal fury foe three hoars, 
when, after having been charged a 
third time by oar troops, they re> 
treated, leaving oo the 6eld 700 mm* 
io killed and wounded, while oar loM 
amounted to about 20. 

The enemy now, by two akilfal 
manoeuvres, which oar amali fore* 
was totally inadequate to oppose, rat 
o6P all communication between the 
shipping and the camp, by means of a 
large flotilla of gun-boats. 

On the morning of the 30th the 
enemy renewed their attacks on the 
camp of Berville, and again on the 4th, 
bringing tbeir hordes to the charge in 
perpetual succession ; their suceeaat 
however, was the same as on the lint' 
attack, having lost during the thrta 
attacks, on a moderate compotatioii, 
2,0iX) men. 

In the second attack General Gra- 
ham was wounded by a musket ball in 
the leg, and several of his officers felLt 

directions of the monster Victor Hugvei, 
ordered to clean the prison-ship in turn 
nith the others ; bat from this degrading 
otCt<x he irss reUered by the datifol at- 
tadiment of his men, who would not per- 
mit it ; bis food and lodging- were the some 
a> the rest, no attention being paid to bis 
rank : but from the respect and good 
behaviour of hi.t men not one of them 
would desert from him. A great number 
of people of all ages, sex, and conditions, 
were condemned to the guillotine by this 
inexorable tyrant, all of whom were con- 
ducted in boats round the pritoH-thip, in 
order to distress and intimidate the British 

t In one of these attacks Mons. Ver- 
mont was shot through the body, hit 
Lieutenant, Moos, de Lisle, was shot 
through the breast, and naotber of hia 
officers killed ; but in this situation be 
beat off the enemy. Tiiis gallaat bat 
unfortunate officer was. at the beginninc 
of the Revolution, possessed of a good 
estate near Trois Rivieres, at Basse Terre, 
which soon made bim on object of Repub- 
lican vengeance ; his house was attacked, 
but be escaped iuto the woods, supposing 
that his amiable wife would be safe from 
tbeir fury, being far advanced in pn^- 
nancy ; bat the monster*, aot regarding her 

Expedition to Guadaloujie in 17!)4. 


After the thinl action the enemy 
sent in a flag of truce, offering terms 
i)f capitulation, wliich Ucnrral Graham 
in > spirited manner refused. The 
officers, however, waited on the general, 
and stated that the troops, reduced by 
sickness and fatigue, were no longer 
able to undergo the duty which now 
pressed so heavily on thera, and were 
so harassed as to be totally incapable 
of resisting another attack, and which 
the enemy promised to make on thera 
the following morning. General Gra- 
ham, therefore, reconsidering the mat- 
ter, consented to send a flag to the 
enemy, and after some time the terms 
of capitulation were agreed to; but, 
alas ! the unfortunate Royalists were 
not included, though the General en- 
deavoured all in his power to make 
terms for them ; he succeeded, how- 
ever, thus far, to have permission to 
send a covered boat to the Doyne, in 
which he embarked 25 Royalist officers ; 
but their unfortunate brethren to the 
number of 300, who had defended their 
posts to the last with the most un- 
daunted and determined resolution, 
were doomed to suffer death by the 
liands of their Republican brethren in 
cold blood, and in a manner hitherto, 
I believe, unheard of, at least unre- 
corded, in the annaUof thcmost savage 
and abandoned people.* Humanity

stances of barbarity too dreadful to relate,

He was taken and thrown into prison in

cnce by the capture of the island.

must shudder at tlic idea : the Repub- 
licans erected a guillotine, with which 
they .struck off the heads of 50 of tlicm ! 
Thinking, however, this mode of pro- 
ceeding too tedious, they invented a 
more summary plan ; they tied the 
remainder of these unhappy men fast 
together, and placed them nn the brink 
of the trenches which Ihey had so 
gallantly defended; they then drew up 
some of their undisciplined recruits in 
front, who, firing an irregular volley 
at their miserable victims, killed some, 
wounded others, and some, in all pro- 
bability, were untouched ; the weight, 
liowcver, of the former, dragged the 
rest into the ditch, where the living, 
the wounded, and the dead, shared 
the same grave, the soil being instantly 
thrown upon them. 

The English troops were to be al- 
lowed to march out with the honours 
of war. and to be embarked on board 
the French ships, which xrrrr to anil

board to consult with the Admiral on 
the best mode of procpd^ire in this 
critical state of affairs ; ond it was 
detrriiiincd that the whole force which 
the General could collect should go 
into the fort, and the Admiral, in the 
Boync, would render every assistance 
in his power to the garrison ; a pro- 
roiac he performed in a manner which 
drew the warmest thanks of General 
Prescott and his officer;. 

At this period the French Royalists 
hail entirely abandoned os, and the 
militia, who had demanded arms, 
positively refused to enter the fort, 
and soon after dmeried to the enemy .• 
a party in the town seemed also ready 
to rise upon our people, but by the 
vigilance and activity of General 
Prescott they were overawed, and he 
continued to ride into the town un- 
attended as usual. The fort was in a 
miserable state, nothing having been 
done to it since the peace of 1783; 
and Clairfontaine,t a Royalist, who had 
been appointed Administrator-General, 
wanting either influence or ability to 
procure negroes for the purpose, the 
fort was in no way better than when 
it fell into our hands, except being 
cleaner, ond supplied with provisions. 

On the 12th of October, Victor 
Hugues sent a flag of truce, accom- 
panied by Captain Eison, of the 35th 
Regiment, for a supply of money and 
baggage for our captured countrymen, 
with which he returned in two days, 
to Point H Pitre.J 

The enemy now increased their 
forces daily, pressing into their service 
all the negroes who were on the 
different estates ; and if from timidity 
or any other cause they demurred, 
they tprrc intlanlly shot. 

The fort was now closely invested, 
while the enemy had cut off the 
aqueduct which supplied the tank with

a lucrative employment, was unwilling to

water; all the baildiogs in the fort 
being also destroyed by the /ire of the 
enemy, the garrison was obliged to 
take shelter in the bomb-proof case- 
mate, a close and most onwholesome 
confinemeut, particularly in a tropical 

On the 6th of November Victor 
Hugues sent an insolent suronions to 
General Prescott to surrender the fort 
in two hours, which if not complied 
with no further terms would be otTered, 
and " the whole of the garrison would 
be put to the sword." To this the 
General made a short answer, " That 
he would defend it as a soldier to the 
last extremity," and the instant the 
time had expired which the General 
had allowed the French otBccr to re- 
turn to Victor Hugues, he opened a 
heavy lire from all his batteries against 
the Republicans, and continued it 
throughout the day. 

At nine a.m. on the 14th instant, 
reinforcements arrived from England 
in three line of battle ships, with Vice- 
Admiral Caldwell's flag on board the 
Majestic, Captain Wcstcott. The 
garrison was informed that Sir John 
Vaughanhad also at rived at St. Pierre, 
Martinique, and that Sir Charles Grey 
had given up the command to him, 
while Sir J . Jerv'is, worn down by long 
and severe exertions, resigned the 
command of the naval forces to Admiral 
Caldwell, and, embarking his seamen 
from Fort Matilda, sailed for St. Pierre, 
whence, in company with Sir C. Grey 
and suite, he sailed for England on 
the 27th instant. 

On the 5th of December, General 
Prescott despatched his aide-de-cam
